So just what is neurotypical, neurodiversity, neurodivergence and the string of other neuro words which have become part of our vocabulary? Neurotypical is a phrase that describes what society refers to as someone who has a brain that functions, behaves and processes in what is considered to be a typical or standard way. However, this term then excludes people who are autistic, have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), dyslexia and other neurodiverse conditions.
