Finding calm and joy with a neurodiverse family with Emily Quinton

Gabrielle Treanor


Emily Quinton, writer, photographer and speaker, has a busy life with four neurodivergent children and our conversation centres around how she makes space for calm and joy not just for her family, but for herself too.

In this episode we discuss:

  • What Emily has found is essential for being able to be there for her family in the way she wants to 
  • How Emily structures her day and her wellbeing toolkit
  • Challenging societal expectations around rest
  • How creativity plays a part in her family’s happiness
