Apr 11, 2019

Our latest NCCJ Bulletin is on the topic of Neurodiversity, which covers a multitude of neurological differences including but not limited to: Dyspraxia, Dyslexia, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Dyscalculia, Autistic Spectrum, Tourette Syndrome, and others.  Neurodiversity has become the go to word for a large part of the autistic community. It strays away from the medical model of diagnosis, which was created for the convenience of the abled rather than the support of people with disabilities.
