Nicole Tetreault, Ph. D., is a neuroscientist, author, meditation teacher, and international speaker on topics of neurodiversity, neurodevelopment, creativity, mental health, and wellness. Her forthcoming book, Insight into a Bright Mind, explores groundbreaking research examining the experiences of unique, creative, and intense brains weaving interviews, storytelling, and literary science, while advocating for new directions and dialogue of human and neurodiversity.
Dr. Tetreault received her PhD from California Institute of Technology (Caltech) in biology specializing in neurodevelopment and neurodegenerative disorders. As the founder of Awesome Neuroscience, she is dedicated to translating the most promising neuroscience and positive psychology for individuals to live their best life. Her approach centers on guiding individuals to mindfully develop greater self-awareness and compassion, while teaching them positive life practices. Her foundations in neuroscience and meditation ground individuals to better understand their neuroindivuality and encourage them to embody their essence. Dr. Tetreault has researched neurodiversity, including autism, giftedness, and 2e, for over two decades and is passionate about sharing her knowledge and approach to neurodiversity. Being 2e herself, she understands the experience from the inside out.
Dr. Tetreault has authored and co-authored numerous academic papers on intelligence, autism, brain evolution, neuroanatomy, neuroinflammation, brain development, and behavior. Her popular science writings can be found in 2e Newsletter, Variations Magazine, GHF Dialogue, SENG Newsletter, Gifted Unlimited, and Great Potential Press.
As a Milton and Rosalind Chang Career Exploration Prize recipient from Caltech, Dr. Tetreault is creating Beyond the Cell, a transformative program to rehabilitate incarcerated women through teaching guided meditation, neuroscience, literature, and expressive writing to cultivate positive neural, mental, and behavioral patterns for healing. Specifically, Dr. Tetreault believes we have the ability to rewire our mind for positive neural plasticity and can manifest positive life practices. Beyond the Cell’s foundational practices lead incarcerated and post-incarcerated women to greater liberation. We can rewire our mind, transform our pain, and create something beautiful.

** I help others improve communication, cognition and learning with tech-savvy strategies, solutions and support**
Everyone has a unique set of strengths and weaknesses when it comes to literacy, learning, thinking and communicating. I’m here to help you figure out how to leverage the benefits of technology to overcome barriers in these areas! By matching your needs or the needs of someone you know to features and strategies that can support strengths, I can help you thrive in school, at home, in the community and at work.
Through my practice, Innovative Speech Therapy, I offer state-of-the-art local and long-distance therapy, coaching and training programs. My mission is to help you and those you care about become more tech-savvy and confident that you are aware of the many resources that can be used to reach your goals, reduce stress, and promote happiness!
Over the past 30+ years as a licensed and certified speech-language pathologist, tech-entrepreneur and mother of 4 children of my own, I’ve developed a system that works to help individuals of all ages and abilities who have attention, communication, literacy and learning challenges.
I am always looking for ways to use affordable technologies that will help others get more out of life. So many of us are focused on just getting through the day, it is often difficult to take a step back to figure out if there is a different approach that may dramatically change everyday tasks and routines to make them more efficient and effective.
It’s hard to learn more about new technologies and strategies that may be a perfect solution when you don’t even know what to look for! That’s my job. I do my best to stay well informed of the latest accessibility features and tech tools. Together we will explore how to implement technology to achieve your goals.
Feel free to set up a free mini phone consult so that I can help you figure out your next steps. I also offer online courses and enjoy creating customized presentations.

Defying popular myths that assume most gifted people are wealthy, white, and will do fine on their own, THE G WORD reveals the economic, cultural, and gender diversity of our nation’s gifted and talented population at every stage of life, highlighting their educational challenges, social isolation, deep emotional sensitivities, and complex, neurodiverse brains. It puts a face to the physical threats experienced by many in our schools and society-at-large, while also revealing a large and lively community of people working hard to meet their needs while challenging the prejudice and trauma that comes with being labeled “smart” in the 21st century.
THE G WORD is framed by a very specific and urgent inquiry — “In the 21st century, who gets to be gifted in America and why?” Searching for an answer, we take an unexpected path into places and spaces across our great nation that warrant reconsidering. We visit rural, urban and suburban schools, the homes and private lives of gifted families, low-income neighborhoods, even the border with Mexico. We meet brain scientists, educators, and experts across a host of disciplines who help us understand that gifted people reside in all walks of life — including in our prisons. We learn that giftedness often sits right alongside disability as in the case of the growing numbers of twice-exceptional (2e) people. We uncover that the social and emotional challenges being faced by our nation's gifted are actually quite common across school systems — public, private, charter, microschool, and homeschool. And, we learn that all of this did not happen overnight. Decades of back story are visualized through animations and archival materials to help us understand how we arrived in this moment — a moment when a surprising number of American families are simply opting out of traditional school entirely.
