WHAT Is NEURODIVERSITY?
Judy Singer, an Australian sociologist, coined the term 'neurodiversity' in the late nineties. It's used to refer to people with Autism Spectrum Disorder and what used to be called 'Aspergers'; ADHD and specific Learning Difficulties such as Dyslexia. 1 in 7 people or 15% of the UK population are neurodivergent*. People with these lifelong conditions tend to struggle socially, at home, school, in the workplace and in their relationships. But where the medical model looks for a 'cure' for a 'problem', the social model of neurodiversity acknowledges the qualities of neurodivergent people and proposes that if society would only accomodate people with a different neurological make-up, then people who are neurodivergent would thrive!
