Neurodiversity

More content coming soon. From Wikipedia:

Neurodiversity is an approach to learning and disability that suggests that diverse neurological conditions appear as a result of normal variations in the human genome.[1] This neologism originated in the late 1990s as a challenge to prevailing views of neurological diversity as inherently pathological, instead asserting that neurological differences should be recognized and respected as a social category on a par with gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or disability status.

A Literature Review Exploring the Efficacy of Person-Centred Counselling for Autistic People.

This literature review brings together almost all of the literature available worldwide for person-centred counselling for autistic people. The review demonstrates that person-centred counselling can be a highly effective therapy type for the autistic client group, the core conditions of empathy, congruence and unconditional positive regard are vital. Autistic people often grow up with many conditions of worth, the PCA is ideal for breaking these down. The review explores what adaptations are currently being made and which could be made to make person-centred counselling more accessible to this under-supported group. The author is of the firm opinion that as autistic people are individuals too, it is important that all therapeutic approaches are made available to them, not just CBT which is the predominant offering.
