Project Haans

A space to share & get support on your journey as parents, caregivers, self-advocates & allies of neurodiversity

The term neurodiversity was first used by sociologist, Judy Singer. Neurodiversity refers to variation in the human brain in relation to sociability, learning, attention, mood and other mental functions in a non-pathological sense.

Autism, Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD or dyspraxia), Dyslexia, Dyscalculia, ADHD, Tourette Syndrome and others are considered types of neurodiversity.
