Neurodiversity and Education

Neurodiversity and Education

February 2023 | 176 pages | Corwin UK
Human brains are diverse: each one of us has a unique set of connections between billions of nerve cells.
Neurodiversity is about us all. It is not an exclusive club or one condition, difficulty, difference, or disorder.
Understanding more about the concept of neurodiversity helps us consider, respect and appreciate these differences. It helps us see potential rather than deficit.
This clear and practical book, which is useful for all apsects of learning and education discusses how an emphasis on neurodiverse 'ability' can cultivate a better world.
Chapter 1: What is neurodiversity?
Chapter 2: Framing neurodiversity - past and present
Chapter 3: The 3Ms - Missed, Misdiagnosed and Misunderstood
Chapter 4: Mental health and wellbeing
Chapter 5: Reframing
Chapter 6: Universal Design
Chapter 7: The Inclusive Classroom
Chapter 8: Teaching and Learning
Chapter 9: Assessing neurodiverse learners
Chapter 10: Neurodiversity in the Education Workplace

The book was warmly welcomed by the students for its contemporary perspective. I can happily report that the book is included in the current and next year's recommended reading list.
