The Dyslexia Life Hack Show – Finding Belonging and Navigating Microtraumas with Devon Lowndes


In this episode, I join host Matt Head and discuss the importance of finding belongingness and the impact of micro-traumas and how to navigate these challenges.

As I have Dyslexia and ADHD, I therefore have first hand experience of micro-traumas that many neurodivergent people experience in a life-time. I talk about how micro-traumas don’t leave physical scars, but we do hold them within our bodies which has a far reaching impact in all areas of our lives, be it at home, at work, or in education!

I talk about how I found belongingness and how important this is to thrive with dyslexia. Because, when you’re expelling energy to masking, assimilating or pretending, you can focus that energy for your own success! Like many other neurodivergent people, I know what it’s like not to feel like you fit in anywhere and how much you crave feeling like you belong.
