What is Neurodiversity?

As defined in this post about neurodiversity terms, neurodiversity refers to the diversity of human brains and the wide variety of individual differences in brain functioning. It's a term that was coined in the late 1990s by Judy Singer.

It's the idea that we all experience and interact with the world in different ways and that there isn't one "right" or "correct" way to think, learn, and behave. 

Also, it recognizes that different ways of thinking and being are all part of the normal variation found in human brains. Therefore, differences are simply differences - not deficits - when viewed through the lens of neurodiversity.
