Sensory Stories # 53: Neurodiversity – we are all just different
Posted: 31 August, 2022
By: Annemarie Lombard
In this episode, Annemarie talks about a very prominent buzz word – neurodiversity.
This makes us happy as occupational therapists at Sensory Intelligence® Consulting, as we’ve always played in the field of “people are different, they are unique.” We all need to consider and accept the differences that make human beings unique from each other. The field of neurodiversity has been facilitated by autism, particularly considering these individuals within a particular workspace or school, and this is important because they are intellectually brilliant but often require special environmental accommodation.
It’s important to remember that neurodiversity doesn’t just mean autism, ADHD, dyslexia or dyspraxia… but literally means we are all wired differently. Watch the video to see how we at Sensory Intelligence® embrace this term and acknowledge that unique sensory wiring means a unique set of needs.
