How do you personally define neurodivergent? What kind of person wouldn’t be considered neurotypical? Would you mind giving examples of some conditions a neurodivergent person might have? (Adhd /autism are obvious).

      @mthebrave yes. ocd is. i dont believe Chiari malformation is though. i might be wrong, but I believe that it is more of a mental disorder/illness term.

      OCD is neurodivergent? What about Chiari malformation? As I have both 😊

      I believe that someone who is neurodivergent is someone born with any neurological difference ☺️

      @livedexperienceducator on instagram talks a lot about this!! I recommend checking out their stuff, neurodivergence is so much broader than just autism/adhd :)

      well neurodivergent can now be defined as someone with a mood dysorder, personality disorder, mood disorder, ocd. technically if someone has a disorder that affects how's their brain works. someone who is neurotypical doesn't have anything that affects the brain in that way.
