2.15 Looking at Neurodiversity with a Fresh Perspective
In this episode, we’re taking a closer look at neurodiversity. We’re seeing the term neurodiversity come up in a lot of different places from social media, to newspapers, to articles, and more. It is a global conversation that we should all be looking at with a fresh view and perspective.
Tune in as we discuss what neurodiversity means to us, and, based on the current research, where dyslexia comes into the discussion of neurodiversity. We’ll also look at shifts in language surrounding neurodiversity, and what this all means for educators, parents, caregivers, students, and the world.
Stick around until the end for some additional podcast and book recommendations on this topic!
