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.
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.
