Immune Gut & Brain

Discover what a medical diagnosis can do for you and your confidence, and discovering your purpose and sense of belonging. Ellie Middleton is an autistic and ADHD creator, speaker, writer and consultant. After a lifetime of feeling misunderstood, she was diagnosed with both Autism Spectrum Disorder and ADHD at the age of 24. Since then, she’s gone on to build an audience of over 300,000 people online, create the (un)masked community for neurodivergents, and work with global brands like The Independent, Google & LinkedIn to change the narrative on neurodiversity.

Ellie aims to shout about the positives that come with being neurodivergent, highlight the ways that society can better accommodate those of us with different brains, and help other undiagnosed neurodivergent people find the answers that they deserve. She is living proof that getting a diagnosis can change your life, change your outlook and allow you to reach your true potential – and thinks that is something that every neurodivergent person deserves. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at x
