Stories of the Mind: Perspectives from the Tulane Neurodiverse Community

This guide is a resource that will serve as a starting point for successfully employing neurodiverse staff at Tulane University.

Neu·ro·di·ver·si·ty | is the diversity of human brains and minds – the infinite variation in neurocognitive functioning within our species.

Neu·ro·di·ver·gent | sometimes abbreviated as ND, means having a brain that functions in ways that diverge significantly from the dominant societal standards of “normal.”

Neu·ro·typ·i·cal | often abbreviated as NT, means having a style of neurocognitive functioning that falls within the dominant societal standards of “normal.”

People represented in this category are those with typical diagnostic labels such as:

  • ASD
  • ADHD
  • Anxiety Disorders
  • Intellectual Disabilities
  • Schizophrenia
  • Mood Disorders
  • Dyslexia

Resources Guide

This LibGuide has a variety of resources. All books are part of the university catalogue, and all articles can be accessed when logged in with your Tulane ID. We have also included external links and videos.

As everyone processes information differently, our hope is that providing a variety of resources can encourage and empower all Tulane managers, staff, and faculty to learn more about Neurodiversity at large and in the workplace.
