13th - 19th March marks Neurodiversity Celebration Week - a week that aims to bring about worldwide neurodiversity acceptance, equality and inclusion.

This year we thought it would be helpful to explore where the term neurodiversity comes from and what classes as a neurodiverse condition. Plus, we’ve shared a short guide on attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) - what it is, how it impacts individuals and the strengths associated with the condition.

Where does the term ‘neurodiversity’ come from

The concept of neurodiversity helps us to embrace equality, diversity, and inclusion. It is a way in which we can celebrate authenticity and difference.

The term neurodiversity was originally coined for a human rights advocacy purpose by the Australian social researcher, Judy Singer in 1998. Judy herself identifies as autistic.
