Neurodiversity. We always talk about it but never explored the history of this wonderful phenomenon. It is a neologism that was made popular in the 1990’s. Judy Singer, an Australian sociologist, and Harvey Blume, an American journalist, coined the term. Neurodiversity is the variation in the human brain regarding sociability, learning, attention, mood and other neurological and brain functions in a non pathological way. The term takes the suffix “Neuro” meaning brain and the word “diversity” to create the term. This starts the social model of disability.
