There’s a bit of debate about exactly what neuroatypical includes. Stuff people are “born with” such as ADHD and autism are pretty much always considered neuroatypical conditions.
Some folks will also use neuroatypical for causes neurological changes later in life, such as PTSD and alzheimers. Some folks include mental disorders that don’t have a clear neurological correlation, such as depression and anxiety.
But as a general rule, you can figure that a neurotypical person’s brain will work differently than a neurotypical person’s brain, and this can affect the way we experience the world, respond to thing, think, process information, and a great deal more.
Neuroatypical means the same thing as neuro-atypical, neurodivergent, or some ways people say neurodiverse. It just means someone’s neurology is not within the realm most people consider ‘normal’. Some people reserve this for things that are different about the brain, other people will use it in addition for anything that affects neurology (nerve functioning) elsewhere in the body.
So like, some people would call me neuroatypical for having a neuromuscular junction condition. Other people would say that I’m only neuroatypical for having, for instance, developmental disabilities, brain damage, etc. Because a neuromuscular junction condition isn’t taking place in the brain, but does affect nerves (and is therefore neurological) all over the body.
