Neurodiversity is the idea that it's normal and acceptable for people to have brains that function differently from one another.
History of Neurodiversity
The concept of neurodiversity was introduced during the fight for autism awareness and rights.
A sociologist named Judy Singer (who is autistic) coined the term in 1997.
Though the idea of neurodiversity and looking at brains as naturally different instead of flawed was initially meant only to refer to people on the autism spectrum.
However, nowadays, it concludes that brains can function differently, such as for people with ADHD, dyslexia, and many other conditions.
Neurodiverse applies to a community of people whose members are neurodivergent.
Neurodiversity is an approach to education and ability that supports the fact that various neurological conditions are the effect of healthy changes in the human genome.
The conditions of ADHD, Autism, Dyspraxia, Dyslexia, and many others make up 'Neurodiversity'.
Neuro-differences are recognized and appreciated as a social category on par with ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, or disability status.
