Neurodiversity Resources and Supports for Students with Disabilities
What is Neurodiversity?
Neurodiversity refers to a range of brain differences that can affect processing, learning, and behavior. Neurodivergent is a term used when an individual's brain functions differently in one or more ways than what is considered typical. Students with autism, ADHD, learning disabilities, and some psychological disorders may identify as neurodivergent. Neurodivergent learners often respond differently to traditional teaching methods.
Both neurodivergent and neurotypical students have strengths and challenges that they encounter in the learning process. The Learning Commons is equipped to meet the academic support needs of all students, including neurodivergent learners, students with mental health concerns, or physical disabilities.
