Description 

Everyone’s brain is wired differently. It is what makes each of us unique. Unfortunately, historically in society, this uniqueness is often defined as a neurological problem such as ADHD, Autism, depression, or anxiety. A newer perspective has emerged that challenges this historical way of thinking about neuropathology. This new perspective is called neurodiversity, which asserts that neurological differences can be viewed as a societal category that is similar to gender, ethnicity, and sexual orientation. In this course, you will gain a deeper understanding between neurotypical and non-neurotypical brains, issues surrounding the neurodiversity perspective, and ways to appreciate neurological differences.
