Diversity and inclusion.


Neurodiversity is the range of differences in individual brain function and behavioural traits, regarded as part of normal variation in the human population.

The term is used especially in the context of autistic spectrum disorders.

Examples of neurodiversity
"... [neurodiversity] is sometimes wrongly applied only to conditions on the autism spectrum, but it also includes people with dyslexia, dyscalculia, dyspraxia, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), Tourette's syndrome, and those with speech, communication and language challenges.
It doesn't imply a specific level of intelligence."
The Treasurer, February/March 2020, p22 - Amanda Kirby, Minds of all kinds.

An alternative term for neurodiverse is neuro-atypical.
