Neurodiversity

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Neurodiversity is an approach to disability and learning which would indicate that different neurological conditions appear from normal variations of human genomes. The terminology neurodiversity began being used in the extremely late 1990s as a challenge to the current views of neurological diversity and focus as being inherently pathological. Furthermore, the term would assert that neurological difference should be recognized and represented as a social category along with gender, human race, sexual orientations and disability status. Examples of these differences include (although are not limited to) autism spectrum conditions, Tourette syndrome, dyslexia and more.
