Updated: Feb 28

Neurodiversity Definitions

· Variation in individual brain function & behavioral traits.

· Part of the normal differences in the human population.

· We experience and interact with our environment in many ways.

· Humans learn, act, and think differently from one another.

· Neurodiversity is not thought to be a deficit but a difference.

Neurodiversity Examples

Many people use the terms neurodiverse and autistic interchangeably. However, there are many examples of Neurodiversity, including ADHD, Dyspraxia, Dyslexia, Dyscalculia, Dysgraphia, Tourette’s Syndrome, Meares-Irlen Syndrome, Synesthesia, and Sensory Processing Disorder.

Using the definition of brain differences as Neurodiversity, one might also consider bipolar disorder, OCD, schizophrenia, anti-social personality disorder, dissociative disorder, and brain injuries of all sorts to fall under this umbrella.

Many times, people have at least two neurodivergent classifications.
