What Are Examples of Neurodivergence?
Examples of neurodivergent thinkers include people with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), autism spectrum disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) to name a few. In addition, people with mental health conditions, learning disabilities, intellectual and developmental disabilities, and other conditions experience unique ways of thinking, learning, and perceiving the world.
