Neurodiversity is a term that highlights the diversity of human minds. It was first coined by an Australian sociologist named Judy Singer back in the late 1990s.
According to Harvard Health, Neurodiversity describes the idea that people experience and interact with the world around them in many different ways. The concept of neurodiversity points out that some children and adults think, learn and process information differently than others. This is when they started to include not just Autism, but other neurological conditions as well. Three of the common neurodiversity aside from Autism would be Dyslexia, Dyscalculia and Dysgraphia.
The use of this term aims to raise more awareness that there is nothing wrong with neurodivergent people, they have talents and great potentials just maybe a little different than neurotypical learners.
