We do the very best we can to not only learn about autism, but to advocate and fight for the empowerment of autistic individuals! Awareness of Autism is only the very beginning of a journey to embracing autism.
Neurodiversity means that all brains are different…naturally! Through this perspective, we can appreciate that a neurodivergent brain holds just as much value and should be embraced no less than a brain that falls into a majority or ‘neurotypical’ realm. Neurodivergent refers to an individual who has a less typical cognitive variation, including, but certainly not limited to: Autism, ADHD, dyslexia, dyspraxia, and sensory processing disorder.
Autistic Individuals are helping to lead the charge in the The Neurodiversity Movement: a social justice movement seeking equality, respect, inclusion, and civil rights for people with brain differences.
