    Description: 
    xi, 275 p. ; 24 cm.
    Edition: 
    1st Da Capo Press ed.
    Contents: 
    Neurodiversity : a concept whose time has come -- The joy of the hyperactive brain -- The positive side of being autistic -- A different kind of learner -- The gift of mood -- The advantages of anxiety -- The rainbow of intelligences -- Thinking in a different key -- Neurodiversity in the classroom -- The future of neurodiversity.
    Summary: 
    Armstrong argues that we have been too quick to pathologise brain differences. Indeed, in recent years, we have re-classified these differences, labeling many of them "disorders." What science actually suggests is that there are many different ways for our brains to be wired, and that there are actual "gifts" or "strengths" attached to some of these differences.
