Clif reached out to me about his book to see if the material would be a good fit for my podcast, Neurodiverging. You can hear my interview with him here: https://neurodiverging.com/interview-with-clif-adkins-author-of-martian/. Clif Adkins is a school counselor and specializes in working with kids with who have trouble fitting in to the typical school environment. He's collected his many years of experience in the elementary and middle school settings to provide insight and advice into helping young people frame their differences in a positive, self-actualizing way, by conceptualizing their different minds creatively, as "Martian" minds. As as self-identified Martian himself, Adkins is able to pinpoint exactly how this type of person identifies and actualize differently than a typical "Earthling" person would, and gives tips on how to reach and support these kids and their families from his years of working with them directly. Many neurodivergent people refer to themselves as aliens or Martians or astronauts, so seeing it in book form felt highly validating to me. I loved how Adkins framed the notion of the Martian as someone with a different set of needs and goals than typical society, without medicalizing that difference in any way. Although at times I felt the book could have benefited from a more thorough editing process technically, emotionally, the book delivered for me.
