Neurodiversity and the Myth of Normal- Online Workshop

The terms ‘neurodiversity’ and ‘neurodivergence’ are popping up all over the early years field right now. These terms relate to the variation in neurological functioning in humans in the same way biodiversity relates to the variation in life on earth at the genetic, species, and ecosystem levels. The neurodiversity movement asks us to recognize that there is no actual ‘normal’ way to perceive the world and appreciate that many people experience the world differently from ourselves and that is natural. Pam will introduce the terms, the history, and current research so we can support neurodivergent children and truly build inclusive environments.
