The Emerging Challenges of Neurodiversity in the Classroom
The concept of neurodiversity was first developed in the context of autistic people’s lived experience (and a much-needed adjustment away from conceptualising living with ASD as a “disorder” that needs “fixing”). The concept focused on brain-based ASD traits that were not neurotypical, some of which were strengths, and some of which benefited from greater support, understanding and adaptation (particularly in the classroom). Subsequently, it has been applied to other neurodevelopmental and/or neuropsychiatric conditions such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), speech and language disorders, specific learning disorders (e.g., dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyspraxia), and Motor Disorders (e.g., Tourette’s Disorder). The benefits and challenges of utilising “neurodiversity” to describe students requiring additional support will be questioned and explored.
