What is Neurodiversity?

What is neurodiversity?

By Nicole Baumer, MD, MEd, Contributor, and Julia Frueh, MD, Guest Contributor [Harvard Health Publishing]

"Neurodiversity describes the idea that people experience and interact with the world around them in many different ways; there is no one "right" way of thinking, learning, and behaving, and differences are not viewed as deficits."
