Neurodiversity paradigm

In the last article, we became familiar with the word neurodiversity. We have discovered that this term simply says how varied our brains are.

But let’s move on to another topic which I promised you in the previous article, a neurodiversity paradigm. Neurodiversity itself is nothing more than a simple description of natural human biology. The neurodiversity paradigm is then, in contrary, a creation of human minds.

It says approximately this. Although we have different brains, although there are groups of people, whose heads work in a completely atypical way, even though, any type of the brain isn’t superior or inferior to another one. Putting it simple, the neurodiversity paradigm suggests that we are all equal. It doesn’t matter if we are schizophrenics, autistics, dysortographics or anything else. We all stand next to each other at the same level, in the same plane, we, the neurodivergent and our neurotypical mates as well. The opinions of all human beings have the same validity and should always be heard out regardless of the fact whether they belong or don’t belong to neurominority. And that’s, according to me, a very important idea.

Neurodivergent people are often great targets for discrimination because of their differences. The paradigm, which I’ve introduced to you right now, stays strongly against any possible form of discrimination of neurodivergents and I can completely relate to it.

However, it’s still just a theory.  What to do when somebody really does discriminate you because of your neurodiversity? What to say? How to defend yourself? How to contribute to the better world? To the world where the discrimination doesn’t affect our lives so frequently?  You’ll find all these information and many more in the next article. Stay tuned!
