Firstly, what is Neurodiversity?
Neurodiversity is the idea that differences in the brain and cognition aren't deficits but normal variations that bring both strengths and challenges.
What is Neurodiversity Celebration Week?
"Our purpose is to help the world to understand, value and celebrate the talents of neurodiverse minds."
Neurodiversity Celebration Week was founded in 2018 by Sienna Castellon who "wanted to change the narrative and create a balanced view which focuses equally on our talents and strengths" (https://www.neurodiversityweek.com).
It is an international initiative created to promote neurodiversity, challenge the focus on brain differences and provide an opportunity to celebrate the advantages of being neurodivergent.
