Neurodiversity: Celebrating Different Minds

Celebrate Neurodiversity!

Neurodiversity refers to the idea that people interpret and interact with the world differently. There is no right or wrong way, there are just neurological differences between people. Neurodiversity was coined in the 1990’s to destigmatize ideologies surrounding autism, dyspraxia, dyslexia, ADHD, and more.  The neurodiversity movement also works towards the acceptance and inclusion of all people with neurological differences. It is important to shift our mindsets to embrace and celebrate these differences instead of viewing them as deficits. 


This April, being Autism Awareness Month and Neurodiversity Celebration Month, the University library in collaboration with the Best Buddies Club, invites you to learn more about neurodiversity in an effort to make our CSUSM campus a more inclusive and accessible space. To learn more about neurodiversity, check out the University Library’s display (on the library’s third floor), available Library Resources, Campus Resources, and our Recommended Reads.
