Qu’est-ce que la neurodiversité et quelle est sa signification pour la pratique de la santé au travail ?
Cases of neurodiversity come across my desk daily and sometimes multiple times daily in my role as a senior occupational health adviser. What is neurodiversity and what is the significance to occupational health practice? Neurodiversity means to think differently and the way each person thinks is as unique to that person as other characteristics such as gender, height or eye colour. The term neurodiversity came into existence in the late 1990s providing one exclusive term for the characteristics that represent all types of neurodiversity. Neurodiversity includes dyslexia, dyspraxia, dyscalculia, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, autism spectrum disorder and Tourette syndrome.
