What is Neurodivergence? A quick read about Neurodivergence
More than half a century ago, the campaign for equal rights and social justice led to a more inclusive environment in society. People belonging to minorities and other diverse groups were given equal opportunities in school and the workplace. Discrimination against them was prohibited, and society educated people to eliminate biases and prejudices against them.
The stigma attached to the minorities, marginalized, and discriminated against were slowly being erased. As the fight for diversity and inclusion gains further ground, more and more people who were once stigmatized fought for their rights, too, resulting in broadening the spectrum of diversity and inclusivity.
Among those who successfully fought for their rights were the stigmatized people who had psychological or mental disorders. The fight against stigmatization resulted in inclusion and acceptance into the society of people once characterized as having suffered from mental disturbance.
The fight against the stigmatization of those people is a fight for “neurodiversity.” But what does neurodiversity mean? And who are the people that stand to benefit in the continuing fight for neurodiversity?
