About this guide
Neurodiversity is the term that describes the idea that there is naturally occurring variation in the human brain, which can impact a series of brain functions such as how we interact with one another and how we process information.
The word neurodiversity is short for neurological diversity. Neurological or neurology is a word that describes the biological functioning of the nervous system, and in particular the brain. Neuro- is a prefix that can be applied to other words to discuss things relating to the nervous system or brain.
“Neurodiversity is everywhere, so if your team are only neurotypical you're only designing for neurotypicality, and you're missing a huge part of the population.”Dr Nancy DoyleFounder, Genius Within/Co-director, Centre for Neurodiversity at Work, Birkbeck, University of London
