Suppose it is normal to be different

Trudy Dehue is a scientist and a philosopher at the University of Groningen. With her talk she wants to raise the question: suppose it is normal to be different. More and more people live with psychiatric diagnoses such as autism, ADHD or PDD-NOS. But what is a disorder? The given criteria are descriptive. Meeting these criteria is not the same as having symptoms of a disorder.'Our neurobiological make-up is much more complex than we thought,' says Dehue. Refreshing and inspiring TEDtalk.
