What Is A Neurotypical, And Why Do Many In The Autism Community Use This Word?

Question: What is a neurotypical, and why do many in the autism community use this word?

Answer: Typically they use that word when they're describing someone who does not have autism. A neurotypical is someone who has developed around the normal pathways of development whereas somebody with autism has a different neurological basis for their development. So neurotypical or NT is usually used to define someone who does not have autism.
