Neurodiversity is a concept that celebrates the diversity of human brains and minds. It acknowledges that people have unique neurological differences, just like variations in personalities, skills, and abilities. While everyone's brain develops similarly, no two brains function just alike. Being neurodivergent means having a brain that works differently from the average or “neurotypical” person. These differences should be embraced and valued, everyone has a role to play no matter how their brain works.
