New NCCJ Bulletin: Neurodiversity

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.

After what seemed like the snow-filled winter that would never end, spring is finally here. Our resilience paid off and we've made it through those long, cold winter days and nights.

And resilience is something that we celebrate at NCCJ. With all that's going on in the world -- the disheartening events in today's news -- we need to gather all of the strength, skills and support that we can.  So today, let's take a moment to celebrate springtime together: enjoy the warmth, the flowers and the promise of sunnier days to come.
