Neurodiversity & Autistic Pride Day

During pride month we have Neurodiversity Pride day (June 16th) and Autistic Pride Day (June 18th)! These pride days give people of the neurodivergent/diverse, Autistic, ADHD, Tourette’s, etc. communities a day to focus on the positive!

As someone of the neurodivergent/diverse community, I think it would be nice to share some memes that I really relate to!

P.S. there are term definitions at the end of the blog.

Neurodiversity Terms to Know

  • Neurodiversity – refers to the natural diversity of human minds. It’s a biological fact that we are diverse in our minds just like we are diverse in our ethnicity, gender, sexuality, etc. Acknowledges the whole spectrum of neurodiversity from neurodivergent to neurotypical individuals (Created by Judy Singer).
  • Neurodivergent – an umbrella term for individuals who have a mind or brain that diverges from what is ‘typical’. Neurodivergence can be acquired or genetic (Created by Kassiane Asasumasu).
  • Neurotypical – a term that describes people whose mind or functioning falls within the society standards of what is to be ‘typical’, ‘common’ or ‘normal’.
  • Neurodiverse – a term to describe a group of individuals who represent the spectrum of neurodiveristy which includes neurotypical and neurodivergent individuals.

Reminder: Being different doesn’t mean that you are less! You matter and fit in other communities!
