Understanding Neurodiversity

'Neurodiversity' is a phrase first introduced in the 1980’s by Judy Singer.

Neurodiversity is a term used to describe a range of neurological differences  including:

  • Dyslexia

  • Dyspraxia (also called Developmental Coordination Disorder, or DCD)

  • Dyscalculia

  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

  • Autism Spectrum Condition (ASC).

These conditions very often co-occur and many symptoms overlap, as shown in the diagram on the right.

There are many strengths in neurodiversity.
