We’re diving into the role that sports and athletics can play in the life of a neurodiverse person with Michael Shipper. If you are in the midst of signing your kids up for all of the summer activities, this is one you won’t want to miss. And if you don’t have kids, I guarantee you’ll be able to connect our conversation back to your own childhood and fit it into the growth you’re working on right now.
