Neurodiversity is an umbrella term for many different neurological conditions, all with different symptoms and behavioural effects.
The only commonality is that a neurodivergent person will process information in a different way to what is considered ‘neurotypical’. Examples of neurodivergent conditions include:
- ADHD, including inattentive ADHD
- Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
It is important to note that while some neurodivergent individuals do consider themselves to be disabled, many others do not consider themselves to have a disability in line with the definition set out in Section 6 of the Equality Act 2010.
