1️⃣ What is neurodiversity: neurodiversity refers to the range of brain function and behaviour differences in people, including conditions like autism, ADHD, and dyslexia

--------------------------------------------

“Neurodiversity” is a term used to describe the range of differences in brain function and behaviour that exist among people ❤️These differences can include conditions like autism, ADHD, dyslexia and many others. Neurodiversity celebrates these differences in the brain and recognises that these differences are not always negative. In fact, some differences can actually be strengths 💯

For example, someone with ADHD might have difficulty focusing in a traditional classroom setting, but they might excel in a more dynamic and fast-paced work environment. Similarly, someone with autism might struggle with social interactions, but they might have incredible attention to detail and problem-solving skills 😊

Neurodiversity supporters believe that everyone should be accepted for who they are, regardless of their brain function or behaviour 💭 It’s important to remember that just because someone’s brain works differently to yours, it doesn’t mean they are any less valuable or capable.

Hopefully this has given you a better understanding of neurodiversity, and will help you make the world a kinder and more accommodating place 💫
