Lyric Rivera


QueerPsych Content Creator

Lyric Rivera (they/them) is a trans-nonbinary, Autistic self-advocate who runs the internationally recognized NeuroDivergent Rebel blog. Lyric is also the Owner of NeuroDivergent Consulting, and the author of the best-selling business ethics book, Workplace NeuroDiversity Rising, praised in Forbes as “an excellent ‘how to manual’ based on lived experience and professional Competence.”

The NeuroDivergent Rebel was started in the fall of 2016 as a way to introduce people unfamiliar with the concept of Neurodiversity to this new way of seeing neurological differences.

The blog, which is sometimes released in written format and sometimes as a YouTube video, explores the ideology of Neurodiversity and the creative expressions of Autistic people. Lyric Rivera’s blog pushes for acceptance of neurological differences and respect for the autonomy of NeuroDivergent people.

Lyric Rivera has a diverse business background, and in the past, Lyric has successfully worked to help organizations of all sizes but will admit to having a soft spot for startups and small businesses.
