What is "neurodiversity" anyway?
Updated: Aug 22
We wrote the program on neurodiversity and inclusion
If you have a brain, you are neurodiverse. We define neurodiversity as “individual brain differences that make everyone unique”. These are characterized by the way individuals think, act, receive, retrieve, process, and express what they know. This may present itself in communication, learning, executive functioning, behavior, and their diverse representations are meant to be interpreted as differences rather than deficits. This “differences approach” forms the foundation for Legacy Education’s Neurodiverse & Inclusive Learning Environments Profile / Program (NAILEP) and is what makes all of us neurodiverse.
Legacy Education believes that ambitious educators can in kids’ lives and work with schools and universities to make this a reality through the NAILEP.
