Discover resources created to support individuals and families with neurodiversity, such as autism spectrum disorder, ADHD, and other learning and thinking differences.
Neurodiversity is an approach to learning and disability that argues diverse neurological conditions are the result of normal variations in the human genome.
This term originated in the late 1990s from sociologist Judy Singer as a challenge to prevailing views of neurological diversity as inherently pathological.
Her hope and objective was to shift the focus of discourse about ways of thinking and learning away from the usual litany of deficits, disorders, and impairments (Disabled World, 2020).
