Is There “PROOF” of Genius in Neurodivergent Individuals?

The upcoming play “Proof”, presenting in May by the Roxbury Arts Alliance, deals with two of the most interesting questions of our day: What is “genius” and what is, and isn’t, mental illness?

In alignment with Mental Health Awareness Month, and ahead of the play “Proof”, let’s dispel some misconceptions about neurodivergence.

Local Psychologist Dr. Matt Zakreski is the founder and lead clinician at The Neurodiversity Collective, where he provides therapy and coaching. He also serves as a consultant to schools, works as a professor at the university level, and is a researcher and author on his specialty, Giftedness.

Dr. Zakreski will lead the discussion about neurodivergence, where genius falls in terms of neuropsychology, and mental illness. Learn what makes brains work and what makes them work differently.

He will also discuss strategies and skills everyone can develop to protect their brains and mental health.

All ages are welcome to attend this interesting and timely event.
