In this episode of Uniquely Normal: A Rob Bernstein Podcast, we’re going to be talking about neurodiversity and the importance of the neurodivergent approach. Neurodiversity is the viewpoint that when speaking about learning or mental disabilities, it’s not in a pathological sense. It’s a viewpoint that brain differences are just that - differences, rather than being deficits. It’s an incredibly interesting episode and I’m sure these ideas will greatly help you and your family. Thanks for listening and enjoy the episode.
