Welcome to the Myth Busting Neurodiverse Relationships Podcast, with hosts Natalie Roberts and Heather Parks, busting myths about neurodiverse relationships that we’ve realised aren’t true and that were preventing us from recovering and having the relationships and connection with partners and children that we desperately wanted. We’re here to give you hope that change is possible!

Communication in our neurodiverse relationships is in the top three challenges we hear about most! Why is it so difficult? In this episode, we share our experiences of communication before we knew about neurodiversity in our relationships and some of the awareness and strategies that can help you improve communication, whether your partner’s on board or not!

Do you experience these in your neurodiverse relationship?

  • Defensive and avoidant communication
  • Living with negativity bias
  • Emotional reactivity
  • Communication anxiety
  • Invalidation
  • Hamster wheel conversations that go round and round
  • Communication confusion and upset

In this episode, we discuss:

  • Setting up communication to be successful rather than stressful for everyone involved
  • Improving communication without changing others or needing others to change
  • Finding a third way of communicating where no one has to shape-shift and everyone’s needs are met

Join us FREE at and beyond that there are a number of place you can bring focus to communication with professional coaching and community support.
