What is neurodivergence?

Neurodivergent is an umbrella term for people whose minds work differently than what is considered “normal” or socially acceptable. It often refers to people who have depression, anxiety or developmental or learning disabilities, though it can include other things as well. It is the opposite of neurotypical, which just means someone whose brain works “normally”.


Neurodivergence is the concept that people’s brains are as diverse as humanity is. The term was coined by autistics who advocate that they are not sick, just different, and that the problems they face in trying to navigate life are not inherently a part of autism but in fact caused by a society that does not accept or understand them.
