WTF is Neurodiversity?

“Neurodiversity is short for neurological diversity. …Refers to the diversity of the human brains and minds and to the idea that this is a natural, valuable form of diversity.”

via Autism Acceptance Month | Autistic Self Advocacy Network (ASAN)

“Neurodiversity is the diversity of human brains and minds – the infinite variation in neurocognitive functioning within our species.”

 “Neurodiversity is not a political or social activist movement. That’s the Neurodiversity Movement, not neurodiversity itself.”

via Nick Walker @ NEUROCOSMOPOLITANISM

“Neurodiversity is an approach to learning and disability that suggests that diverse neurological conditions appear as a result of normal variations in the human genome.[1] Thisneologism originated in the late 1990s as a challenge to prevailing views of neurological diversity as inherently pathological, instead asserting that neurological differences should be recognized and respected as a social category on a par with gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or disability status.”  – Wikipedia Entry
