Welcome to the Society For Tourette's , Autism and Neurodiversity (Neurodivergence)

Few Basic terms

Neurodiversity refers to variation in the human brain regarding sociability, learning, attention, mood and other mental functions in a non-pathological sense. It was coined in 1998 by an autistic Australian sociologist Judy Singer, who helped popularize the concept as a part of a social movement. She advocated that brain differences are normal, rather than deficits. And that Neurodivergent individuals experience, interact with, and interpret the world in unique ways.


The diversity or variation of cognitive functioning in humans


Inclusion of a number of substantial cognitive functioning variations.


The presence, or grouping, of less-typical, cognitive variations.

Between 30% and 40% of the population are thought to be neurodivergent. The remaining majority are neuro-typical.

The Society for Tourette’s Autism and Neurodiversity strives to support, raise awareness and increase understanding of Neurodevelopmental conditions globally to allow neurodivergent individuals to lead productive and fulfilling lives fearlessly.
