Neurodiversity is the concept that neurological differences between people should be recognised
and respected. Instead of using terms like ’dys – function’ ‘dis- abilities’ & ‘dis-orders’ neurodiversity is an
enabling term that takes into account neurological differences. Neurodiversity – is not one size fits all.
We are all different and neurodiversity celebrates difference.
I personally love the term neurodiversity, as many children I meet don’t have official “labels” yet, but their family, educators, etc. notice their different way of engaging in learning. My passion is to ensure these children get the most out of their educational settings by putting in place strategies and accommodations that support their specific learning style.
One way to do this is to put in place strategies to ‘make learning fun’.
