Often the term neurodiversity is used in the context of autism and ADHD and refers to the natural differences in the way our brains work.
Some people’s brains simply work in a different way. Your child's brain is unique to them, therefore they'll have unique skills, abilities, and needs. They may experience and interact with the world around them in different ways. There's no right or wrong way of thinking, learning and behaving.
Someone who is neurodivergent behaves, thinks and learns differently to those who are neurotypical.
