At New Heights School we recognise that we are all different.
We are different in looks, personality, likes, dislikes, our mental health and emotional wellbeing, and also in how our brains work.
Neurodiversity (how our brains are all different) makes us interesting and special in our own right. It means some of us are great at one thing, whilst others will be great at others.
The brain is amazing, and there are many ways our brains work differently, but there are also some similarities! People who are diagnosed with neurodevelopmental conditions such as: ADHD, ASC, Dyslexia, Dyscalculia, Dysgraphia, DCD (developmental coordination difficulties, sometimes called Dyspraxia), may have similarities in how their brain works, and how they think/feel – but even then there will be massive differences between them!
Confused? I suppose what we are saying is that every one of us is unique, and here at New Heights School KS3 we recognise that uniqueness – whether people are neurodiverse or not, and provide the support each person needs to be able to reach their potential, regardless of any diagnosis they may have – or not!
