Neurodivergence/neurodivergencies, are terms that acknowledge that, due to our differing neurological wiring (our minds), people can be broadly grouped into separate categories, as we share certain similarities within each group that make us different to other groups. So, neurotypical people’s minds, whilst all unique, are neurologically wired in similar ways. Autistic people’s minds, all unique, are neurologically wired in similar ways, and this is quite different to neurotypical people’s minds. ADHDers, dyslexics, those with PTSD, clinical depression, schizophrenia, the blind, the deaf, bi-polar, Parkinson’s, those with dementia – and too many more too list – all these groups of people share similarities within their group and away from neurotypical people. Some of these states are lifelong and some emerge during the course of a life as an acquired neurodivergence (brain damage due to trauma, for instance). What these groups have in common is that they are all neurodivergencies and all people who are not neurotypical can be grouped under that banner. We are all neurodivergent – and we are the people that this website is here for! According to UCL (University College London) up to 25% of the population is neurodivergent – that’s a lot of people.
