NeurodiversiTC fosters social connection, advocacy, and educational dialogue to better represent the interests of those who are atypical in their perceptual styles. The veneer of pathology versus attribute is explored through examining psychological conditions such as Autism Spectrum, Dyslexia, and Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder not merely as disruptions, but as neurological diversity."Different, not less." ~ Temple Grandin, Ph.D.
