Last night, Developmental Neurodiversity Association facebook group
was created. http://www.facebook.com/#!/group.php?gid1944976821905

It is an extension of DNA which is to help people with neurological
differences that include: Dyspraxia, Dyslexia, Attention Deficit
Hyperactivity Disorder, Dyscalculia, and Autistic Spectrum, but
neurodivergence can also include related conditions like Auditory
Processing Disorder, Sensory Processing Disorder, and other things
that tend to overlap with 6 main neurodivergences.

It is to help raise awareness and understanding about neurodivergence
and neurodiversity. It helps people understand that the symptoms and
traits of neurodivergent conditions overlap with psychiatric
disorders. Developmental Neurodiversity Association (DNA) also wants
to stress the need for multisensory learning environment in schools
because neurodivergence tends to involve a way of learning that is
different from the norm. DNA wants to help raise awareness and
understanding of non-drug approaches to dealing with neurodivergent
conditions including especially ADHD and Autistic Spectrum which tend
to get treated with medication.

The neurodiversity movement is mainly an equal rights movement for
people with neurodivergence and expresses that a different mind is not
necessarily a deficient mind. Neurodiversity is an idea which asserts
that atypical neurological development is a normal human difference
that is to be respected as any other human variation.
