What is Neurodiversity?
Neurodiversity (ND) is an umbrella term and includes a ‘spectrum’ of conditions including Dyslexia, Dyscalculia, Dyspraxia(Developmental Coordination Disorder), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Autism Spectrum Disorder, and tic disorders including Tourette’s syndrome.
About 1 in 8 people are neurodiverse in the general population, 1 in 4 unemployed and 1 in 3 in prisons.
There are a wide range of characteristics, but which nevertheless share some common features in terms of how people learn and process information. Each person is unique as traits often overlap and each person will have their profile of strengths and challenges.
Other terms have been used instead such as specific learning difficulties and developmental disorders.
