The human brain is as diverse as the human fingerprint.
Neurodiversity is an umbrella word that covers a range of conditions that affect the way people process information and think. This includes:
- autistic spectrum conditions (ASC) (often referred to as ASD – autistic spectrum disorder)
- attention deficit disorder/attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADD/ADHD)
- dyspraxia (DCD)
- dyslexia, dyscalculia and dysgraphia
- Tourette’s and other tic conditions
It can also include the cognitive effects of stress and anxiety and chronic fatigue conditions amongst others, such as brain fog and memory issues.
I have always known that while I am bright, have great communication skills and a passion for tackling social and other inequalities, I am also clumsy, a bit messy and disorganised and easily distracted. This has been a problem for me for all of my life – but getting a diagnosis of dyspraxia when I was 62 was a game-changer.
I now specialise, and love, working with people with neurodiverse conditions. Find out how I can work with you, your business, or your employer.
