Based on the theory of constructivism, the narrative synthesis was oriented towards understanding the university experience of neurodi-verse students, as well as how the institution responds to their specific learning needs. Articles on the theme, published in Spanish, were in-cluded. Results demonstrate that the term neurodiversity is under the appropriation process and that students suffer silently the lack of su-pport for specific learning needs, which is related to a lack of an early diagnosis, the fact that students hide their neurodiverse condition, the lack of proper legislation, and the existent focus on disability rather than on neurodiversity.
