Neurodiversity

'Neurodiversity' means that different people have different brain wiring. Unfortunately, those with a minority brain wiring - such as dyslexic, autistic and dyspraxic people - face discrimination at work and in wider society. 

Equality for autistic and neuro-divergent people!

By Joe Booth and Janine Booth, published in Solidarity 426, 11 January 2017

Socialist activists are drafting a manifesto for the Labour Party of radical policies to advance equality for autistic and other neurodivergent people (those with an atypical “brain-wiring”, usually a condition such as dyspraxia or attention deficit disorder). Supported by John McDonnell, a steering group has drafted a proposed manifesto and, having launched it at Labour Party conference in September, is now inviting input from Labour Party and trade union bodies and interested individuals.

Autism, Neurodiversity and the Labour Party: statement from Janine Booth and Monique Craine

We are working with Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell to progress the idea of the Labour Party developing a Neurodiversity/Autism Manifesto and appointing a Shadow Minister for Neurodiversity. We are pleased to hear from John that Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn also supports this idea. Neurodiversity (ND) is the term that describes the fact that different people have different brain wiring (neurology).
