Neurodiversity Resources for UNT Faculty and Staff

Resources to support UNT faculty and staff who are neurodivergent or are working with neurodivergent students.

Welcome!

Welcome to the library's guide on neurodiversity resources for faculty and staff at the University of North Texas. Whether you're looking for information and support for yourself or your students, this guide is for you. Looking for information for inquiring students? Refer them to the library's guide, Neurodiversity Resources for UNT Students

This guide is built upon a previous one that contained resources about autism spectrum disorder only. Please be patient with us as we continually add more resources to support a broader range of neurodivergent individuals and to educate the UNT community. Feel free to contact Erin O'Toole at erin.otoole@unt.edu or Emily Peebles at emily.peebles@unt.edu for further assistance or suggestions for this guide.

 

What is Neurodiversity?

“Neurodiversity refers to the virtually infinite neuro-cognitive variability within Earth’s human population. It points to the fact that every human has a unique nervous system with a unique combination of abilities and needs.” (What Is Neurodiversity? | Neurodiversity Hub)

"Although there is broad diversity across the population, some individuals have neurological variations that make it particularly challenging for their communication, self-expression and interactions with others. These neurological variations include autism, Asperger's, ADHD, dyslexia, dyspraxia, dyscalculia, dysgraphia and tics." (Neurodiversity Hub homepage)
