One of NeuroDiversity Connect’s first activities is consulting with the Blue Mountains community about establishing a hub in the area, which can offer support, community and advocacy to local neurodivergent children, young people and adults, and their families.
In order to gain a better understanding of the Blue Mountains Community, NeuroDiversity connect invites neurodivergent people, their family, and those who provide neurodivergent people with services to complete a 12 question survey in order to understand:
- what services are currently being used,
- what services are currently needed, and
- the ability of neurodivergent people and their families to pay for these services.
Neurodiversity is the variation in human brains. In our society, we tend to categorise diversity. Some of the labels we use to categorize neurodiversity include ADHD, Bipolar, Depression, Autism, Epilepsy, Anxiety, Dyslexia, Aphasia,…. the list goes on. These categories are neurodivergences, and people who have these neurodivergences are neurodivergent. A person can be multiply neurodivergent. Neurodivergence is often considered a disability.
