neurodivergent black women

By Tyresha Vaughan-Blanding


Tyesha Vaughan-Blanding is a senior at Millersville University studying Digital Journalism. She wrote this piece realizing that there was a lack of conversation when it came to Neurodivergent Black Women who specifically have ADHD, Autism, and Dyslexia. Her piece of writing is important to her because she wanted to highlight the systems that work against Black women as well as the challenges they face internally and externally on a day-to-day basis. In her article she presents possible solutions for Black women to have a better experience seeking medical professionals while feeling safe and comfortable reaching out for answers when it comes to neurodivergence.
