What is Neurodiversity?


Neurodiversity (definition)

Neurodiversity (definition):

'The range of differences in individual brain function and behavioural traits regarded as part of normal variation in the human population.'

Neurodiversity is the idea that neurological variations are known and valued as any other human variation.

These variations can include:

  • - Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD or dyspraxia)
  • - Dyslexia
  • - Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
  • - Dyscalculia
  • - Autistic Spectrum (ASD)
  • - Tourette Syndrome (TS), and others

Put another way, a condition such as Dyslexia is a part of who the person is and to take away the dyslexia is to take away from the person.
