Neurodiversity Celebration Week 2021

Posted on 18th March 2021

Neurodiversity encompasses a wide range of neurological differences. Although considered to be a relatively new term, it is thought to have been coined by autism activist Judy Singer back in the 1990s in a bid to move away from the ’medical’ view of autism and the idea it is something that should be “cured”.

Neurodiversity is an approach to learning and disability that argues diverse neurological conditions are result of normal variations in the human genome.

The term “neurodiversity” is used to describe the 1 in 20 people who have any or more than one of the following:

The word ‘Diversity’ means ‘inclusion’. Diversity means a range of different things that encompasses acceptance, respect for individual differences that ensures we are all included – that we ‘belong’. It also means therefore that our difference should not be a barrier that excludes us from achieving our potential, contributing to society and afforded the same rights and protections under law as everyone else.
