Neurodiversity refers to the differences between how people think, process information, behave and communicate. It emphasises that everyone’s mind works differently. People have different interests, motivations, skills and strengths. These differences should be recognised, understood, respected and celebrated. 

While everyone is unique, most people are neurotypical, meaning their brains process information in a relatively similar way. People who process information differently may be neurodivergent.  It is estimated that 15-20% of children and young people in the UK are neurodivergent. 

As part of our Wellbeing library, we have a selection of books that feature neurodiversity: giving representation and relatability,  challenging stereotypes, building empathy and embracing difference. These are used appropriately to promote understanding and raise awareness for both staff and children. We hope parents will also find this list useful.
