Neurodiversity is “the variation and differences in neurological structure and function that exist among human beings, especially when viewed as being normal and natural rather than pathological [i.e., disability or impairment].”6 These differences include those identified as having Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD),7 Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), 8 Dyspraxia,9 Dyslexia,10 Dyscalculia,11 Tourette Syndrome12 or other mental variations considered disabilities under the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. The diversity among human brains is equally as enriching to humankind as biodiversity, cultural diversity and racial diversity and, thus, should be recognized and similarly supported.13 Those who do not possess such variations in their brains are considered neurotypical and collectively make up the majority of IS and other workers.
