WHAT IS NEURODIVERSITY?
Judy Singer, an autistic sociologist, coined the term "neurodiversity" in the late 1990s. It refers to the idea that normal brain variations cause certain developmental disorders. People who have these characteristics also have particular strengths.
Neurodiversity is not synonymous with disability. People with neurodivergent characteristics, on the other hand, may require accommodations at work or school.
OUR BRAIN STRUCTURE
The brain is one of the essential organs in the human body and is thought to be the most complex in the world. The brain comprises billions of neurons and has several specialized parts involved in learning and memory. One common task is transferring emotional signals from the amygdala to the frontal lobe for taking action.
Scientists have discovered that neurodiversity people have different brain structures, but they do not yet understand how these differences lead to the cause. They include different hippocampus sizes, a smaller amygdala, decreased brain tissue in a portion of the cerebellum, and a different pattern of cortex thickness.
WHY SYMPTOMES CAN BE REDUCED?
Dr. Reuven Feuerstein created the theory. He believes intelligence should be viewed as a dynamic construct, with the human cognitive faculty being malleable rather than fixed.
The ability of an individual to learn from new experiences and opportunities and to change cognitive structures is referred to as cognitive modifiability. It helps to improve a person's learning ability.
When a person learns a new skill, they can use the most recent technique instead of the old one.
HOW CAN WE HELP?
The mediated learning experience was created by Dr. Reuven Feuersten (MLE). The quality of interactions between the individual and the environment is represented by MLE theory. It includes a mediated agent, frequently a parent, sibling, teacher, or other professionals. MLE enables learners to develop new skills, behavioural patterns, awareness, and strategies, which can be applied to new experiences and stimuli.
