What is Neurodiversity?

Neurodiversity is both a natural and valuable form of human diversity.  It is a term used to describe people who are wired differently, the 5% not the 95%.

Children who have a negative experience of feeling different, suffering from loneliness, fear, and anxiety, and for whom their everyday world feels like a threatening judgemental place.

Often these children are assessed with one or more of the following diagnoses:

ASD, ADHD, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, SPD, Anxiety, Giftedness, Learning difficulties, and the like  (or no formal diagnosis at all).

A diverse and self-determining bunch who need special understanding and support to achieve wellbeing and success in life.
