What is Neurodivergence?

Neurodiversity is a word we use to describe the unique differences in the ways our brain works. 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. Explore the different types of neurodivergence below:
