The language we use when talking about Neurodiversity
Every organisation wishes to the use the 'right' language when talking about neurodiversity. Poorly considered communications have the potential to cause offence to your community, generate negative comments on social media, or even public and media backlash. Getting it wrong can have real, long-lasting impacts on business and often holds people back from taking the first steps.
However, what is right for one person, may not be right for another! Neurodiversity is a relatively new word, coined in 1998. Cultural and personal understandings of neurodiversity have changed significantly and rapidly, and in many cases, they continue to do so. It's a deeply personal subject that may go to the heart of lots of people's identities.
In this neurodiversity roundtable, we explore the different words people use when talking about neurodiversity. We will also leave you with practical takeaways in developing how your organisation communicates and talks about neurodiversity.
