About Neurodiversity 

Neurodiversity is most commonly associated with Dyslexia, Dypraxia, ADD, ADHD, Aspergers and Autism Spectrum Conditions but includes any condition that affects some, but not all, thinking skills. It is a relatively new term, coined in the 1990s by Judy Singer, an Australian social scientist with an autistic child, however, is now a global concept.  

This concept is that neurological differences are to be recognised and respected like any other human variation. These are 'spectrum' conditions, with a wide range of traits and characteristics which share some common features in terms of how people process information. It is still a concept under debate in our community. 

A strengths based approach and positive mindset often assists our neurodiverse community to manage their challenges and appreciate their abilities - not the deficit approach.
