Word cloud for neurodiversity including autism, ADHD, and dyslexia

What is neurodiversity?

Neurodiversity celebrates the natural differences in neurological functioning among individuals. It recognizes that autism, ADHD, dyslexia, and other conditions are normal variations of the human brain, rather than defects to be corrected. This approach recognizes that diverse cognitive abilities are a driver of creativity, innovation, and extremely successful organizations.
