The term, neurodiversity, first used by sociologist Judy Singer in the 1990s, refers to neurological differences —like autism, ADHD, or dyslexia—that should be normalized and respected in learners. This course introduces the concept in relation to the social model of disability, and explores how we can go beyond accommodations to make the academic classroom more inclusive of and hospitable to neurodivergent learners.
