Medi-Soc Mod Neurodivergence Title Pic 1The Medi-Social© Model of Neurodivergence Logo-Created by Romulus C.

The Medi-Social Model of Neurodivergence is an alternative to the prevalent Medical and Social models of Neurodivergence, applicable to the following, commonly accepted as, Neurodivergent conditions:

The Medi-Social Model of Neurodivergence could also provide a replacement to the imbalanced Psychiatric perspective of the Medical Model and the derailed Social Model Militantism, proposed by the “Neurodiversity Movement” and its ‘biodiversity’ dilettantism.

This Model would holistically and intersectionally consider Neurodivergent conditions in their Medical and Social complexity, with a realistic emphasis on understanding these conditions through also considering the invaluable lived-experience of individuals living with these conditions, and/or the accumulated co-participative experience of their families, caregivers.

I can boldly assert that the structural elements of a Medi-Social Model of Disability and Neurodivergence have always been present in what has been known as the Medical Model, which could have never existed without its Social aspects, proven by the well-known existence of Multidisciplinary Teams, mandated by legislation to safeguard each step of an individual’s journey through their Recovery.

A Medi-Social Model of Disability and Neurodivergence would open the possibility of exploring new and necessary horizons of how all participants in these multidisciplinary teams, such as the individuals themselves, their caregivers, their clinical team, their social worker team etc, could change the Recovery Pathway Dynamic from a Clinical-Team-dependant hierarchical, to a Multidisciplinary Co-participative/Intersectional.
