Originally applying only the Autism Spectrum, Neurodiversity holds that a wide range of conditions that have traditionally been considered developmental disorders are normal variations in the brain. Amongst others, these include Autism, Dyslexia, ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Order), Dyscalculia, DSD (Dyspraxia), Dysgraphia, Tourette Syndrome.

Neurodiversity emphasises that while conditions can cause significant weaknesses for people that also have them, they can also lead to significant strengths. For example, people with ADHD can have trouble with time management, but the condition is frequently associated with high levels of passion, drive, and creative thinking.
