Diverse Minds Embracing Differences: Empowering Messages from Neurodiversity Experts

List of Neurodiversity Speakers

Neurodiversity celebrates all the differences in the human brain that affect learning, sociability, and other mental functions. These differences are viewed as natural variations of the brain rather than deficits, and neurodiversity advocates aim to promote better knowledge and understanding of different ways of thinking and interacting with the world. The neurodiverse speakers in this category dismantle stigma and ableism around conditions like ADHD, autism, learning disabilities, and other mental health topics. As business leaders, educators, self-advocates, and psychologists, the mental health and diversity speakers in this list are creating better spaces for neurodiverse people in schools and in the workplace.
