A word about Neurodiversity

Neurodiversity describes a range of conditions which affect how people receive and process information, (sometimes called cognitive differences). They include dyslexia, autism, dyspraxia, ADHD etc., and can show up very differently in different people. What they have in common is that they impact on people’s executive functions; the skills we need to “do” things every day. This typically shows up in bright people with great ideas who find day to day work and life organisation really difficult. This is the aspect of neurodiversity we are focusing on.
