Neurodiversity: Neurodiversity

Neurodiversity Defined

WHAT IS NEURODIVERSITY?
Although there is broad diversity across the population, some individuals are affected by neurological differences that make it particularly challenging for their communication, self-expression and interactions with others. These neurological differences include autism (ASD), Asperger's syndrome, ADHD, dyslexia, dyspraxia, dyscalculia, dysgraphia and tics.

The environments within which these individuals learn, work and live can either facilitate or inhibit their growth and development. 

The purpose of this initiative is to create environments that will maximally facilitate these individuals to grow and achieve their full potential.
