8 | ADHD Motherhood and Money

Annie chats with the wonderful Tina @theADHDaccountant about late diagnosis, motherhood and money!

In the first part of this episode, Tina shares how she discovered her own neurodivergence after her son was diagnosed. And the wonderful self-acceptance and understanding a diagnosis (or self-identification) can bring.

Then Annie and Tina talk about parenting with ADHD and all the joys and struggles. And how much easier it is to work and live when you understand your divergent brain and can then accommodate it and stop fighting and hiding your neurodivergent traits.

Finally, they get into the money with budgets and impulse spending. Annie shares a shameful story from her past! Shhh!

Enjoy! x

Annie Crowe

Annie Crowe is a human rights lawyer and proud Autistic ADHD PDA 2e Disabled Spoonie.

In 2022, Annie founded NeuroAccess after a decade of practicing private and public law working for the Australian Government. She left her traditional employment in legal practice and public policy to focus on her community and improving the lives of neurodivergent people everywhere. Annie she speaks at national and international conferences, consults and trains professionals on neuroaccessibility, and coaches neurodivergent adults and families to build neuroaccessible lives and advocate for themselves in the many systems (health, employment, education) that too often misunderstand neuroaccess needs.

In May 2022, Annie launched this podcast and simultaneously founded not-for-profit EDNA (Eating Disorders Neurodiversity Australia) where she stepped down as CEO in Jan 2023 partially due to health reasons but mostly due to having successfully achieved her main goal of influencing the first Australian Eating Disorder Strategy (released Aug 2023). Annie continues to consult with the National Eating Disorder Collaboration (NEDC) to ensure eating disorder treatment and prevention acknowledges neurodivergent people and meets our access needs.
