Neurodiversity

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Neurodiversity is a movement and approach to mental disability in which some neurological conditions are variations of the human genome. The term was first used in the late 1990s as a challenge to the idea that neurological differences are disorders instead of features. The movement believes that these variations should be recognised as a social category along with gender, human race and sexual orientation.

Examples of neurodiverse conditions include autism, Tourette syndrome  and dyslexia.
