neurodiversity

The National Post reported on Oct. 7 on a show called “The Joy of Autism” which is showing at Toronto’s Lonsdale Gallery. This show is put together by the Autisim Acceptance Project who embrace the idea of ‘neurodiversity’ which defines autism as a different way of thinking rather than a disability. The artwork is interesting, the concept of neurodiversity challenges my current understanding of autism and those “syndromes” that are considered to be on the autisitic spectrum…like ADD (attention Deficit Disorder).
