Why You're Probably NOT Neurodivergent | Revisiting Neurodiversity



There’s been a lot of interest in the concept of neurodiversity and it’s been used pretty broadly recently. Many people ask me why explanations about it are so vague or why they commonly can’t get a straight answer about whether they are considered neurodivergent. So, today, we’re going to outline what constitutes as neurodivergent as well as engage in a conversation about neurodiversity and some criticisms.
