Neurodiversity is an inclusive, natural, and valuable form of human diversity. What follows is the idea that autism is a part of human diversity.
Neurodiversity is a biological fact. It’s not a perspective, an approach, a belief, a political position, or a paradigm. That’s the neurodiversity paradigm, not neurodiversity itself.
Built on the ideals of the neurodiversity paradigm, is the neurodiversity movement, based on the philosophy that there is no one “normal” or “healthy” type of brain or mind, or one “right” style of neurocognitive functioning.
Neurodiversity may be every bit as crucial to the human race as biodiversity is to our planet.
