Re: Neurodiversity and Genealogy #general

Yes. I have learned that people in several generations of both my husband's and my families had Tourette's or tics, and from anecdotes and descriptions, a few folks may have been autistic as well (although that term would not have been used at the time). This was of interest, as there are several individuals in my and my child's generation that are neurodivergent / neurodiverse.
