Neurodivergence Resources

Neurodivergence includes Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Dyscalculia, Dysgraphia, and Tourette Syndrome, as well as some long-term mental health conditions, such as depression and borderline personality disorder (BPD). While neurodivergence is covered in a legal sense as a disability, neurodivergent people often don't consider themselves to be disabled.


Neurodivergence vs Neurodiversity

Neurodiverse refers to a group of people, some of whom are neurodivergent. A neurodivergent person is someone whose neurological structure and development are atypical. Neurodiversity is about populations - a group of only neurotypical people is not neurodiverse, nor is a group of only autistic people - while neurodivergence is about individuals.
