Neurodiversity: A Primer for Libraries

September 22, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT


Neurodiversity is a contract to medical and pathology models of neurological differences in the brain. It’s a more nuanced perspective of what exactly is “normal” or “appropriate” in people. This webinar will explain the basics of neurodiversity, the growing movement, and how librarians can better create programs and advocate for people who are neurodiverse.

In addition, the webinar will cover:

  • People first vs. Identity first language
  • Broadening the scope of ADA-compliance
  • Controversies of neurodiversity
