Neurodiversity, Disability, and Exceptionality
This six minute video of my convocation talk at Landmark College really encapsulates my thinking on neurodiversity.
We can have disability diagnoses, but we do not have to live as disabled people, thereby internalizing the idea we are "less" than others. We can choose to live as neurodivergent people - using a term that springs from our own community - and recognize each of us has a mix of disability and exceptionality.
Watch the video and tell me what you think:
