‘Neurodiversity is a concept and social movement that advocates for viewing autism, ADHD, hydrocephalus, dyspraxia, and dyslexia (but a few) as a variation of human wiring, rather than a disease.’
Everyone of these people are both high functioning and highly regarded in many ways. We should want to be like them, befriend or employ them. They are fantastically able in so many ways.
A subject close to my own heart as someone with severe dyslexia – this is a long project which will be an exhibition celebrating the skills and attributes of people who are neurodiverse whilst raising awareness and informing others how neurodiverse people have unique skills to offer the world across multiple areas and disciplines. An informative celebration.
The world is starting to pay attention to the fact that many people have different brains and shouldn’t have to pretend they are like everyone else. This is my chance to learn about about many areas I haven’t come across before, while taking portraits of fantastic people. In my one tiny way helping to change opinion, inspire and encourage. This is the next frontier of inclusivity.
