Neurodivergence describes the concept of a neurotype being different from the "norm". A person is neurodivergent, or ND for short, if they are diagnosed – either by a professional or via self-diagnosis self-identity – with one or more of the following: Autism, ADHD, OCD, bipolar disorder, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Dyscalculia, -please add more here-
The antonym of neurodivergent is neurotypical. Or Predominant Neurotype PNT
Difference between neurodivergence and neurodiversity
Neurodivergence express a quality of a person's neurology in relation to the common neurotypical one or Predominant Neurotype (PNT); neurodiversity expresses that there are several neurotypes which differ from each other. One person can be neurodivergent; you could also say "a group of neurodivergent people," who may or may not be neurodivergent in the same way as one another.
A group can be neurodiverse if they have different neurotypes from one another. A group consisting of people with differing neurotypes (which may include neurotypicals or PNT’s) are a neurodiverse group.
