Neurodiversity Celebration Week is a chance to celebrate a wonderful community through their authors and their books. It is a week-long observance that celebrates the neurodiversity movement and promotes awareness and acceptance of different neurological conditions, such as autism, ADHD, dyslexia, and Tourette’s syndrome. This event is typically held in March or April each year and features various activities, events, and initiatives to raise awareness about neurodiversity and promote understanding and inclusion of neurodivergent individuals. 

It aims to highlight the strengths and talents of neurodivergent individuals and challenge negative stereotypes and stigma associated with neurological differences. The specific activities and events may vary depending on the organisation or community organising the event, but they often include educational workshops, guest speakers, art exhibits, social events, and advocacy initiatives.

Neurodiversity is the concept that differences in neurological functioning should be recognised and respected as part of human diversity, rather than being seen as disorders or deficits. This includes conditions such as autism, ADHD, dyslexia, Tourette’s syndrome, and others.
