Neurodiverse differences

Neurodiversity is an umbrella term for a group of neurological development differences which share common features, in particular how people learn and process information.

neuronsDefinitions vary, but these pages use the term, which is generally accepted amongst professionals and specialists, to refer to dyslexia, dyspraxia, dyscalculia, and autistic spectrum (autism/Asperger syndrome).

Many people with information-processing differences do not consider themselves disabled. They prefer to describe themselves as having a different set of skills, abilities and ways of seeing the world which may be very helpful in some situations and less so in others.

It is possible to be highly successful with appropriate support from employers and colleagues.
