Stephen Hawking and Neurodiversity

Published by heatherm on

Stephen William Hawking, CH, CBE, FRS, FRSA (born 8 January 1942) is a British theoretical physicist, cosmologist, and author. His key scientific works to date have included providing, with Roger Penrose, theorems regarding gravitational singularities in the framework of general relativity, and the theoretical prediction that black holes should emit radiation, which is today known as Hawking radiation (or sometimes as Bekenstein-Hawking radiation). source:

Dr. Stephen Hawking is a perfect example of Neurodiversity in action! Who is to say that his physical being is a deformity? Is it not entirely possible-ye probable-that he is exactly who he needs to be both physically and mentally?

Would he be the Genius that he is if her were “cured”? Why would we need to assume he needs a cure?

When you look at someone in a wheelchair, what do you see? Do you see a what or a who? Isn’t it time we saw all whos and got rid of whats?

When you can fully embrace the who of you, can you then embrace the who of others and finally let go of the what?

Light and Love to you!
