About Neurodiversity

Neurodiversity describes the view that variation (diversity) in thinking and learning (neuro-) should be celebrated.

This viewpoint is at the center of what we believe, and are working to help others understand.

Conditions in the Neurodiversity umbrella include ADHD, Dyslexia, Learning Disabilities, and Autism Spectrum Disorder.

Key points of our particular view include:

  • Brain differences are not deficits! Variation in thinking, learning, and socializing is normal.

  • Diagnoses and labels (like ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, and Learning Differences) help folks get services, find community, and understand themselves-  but these conditions and labels are only part of the story.

  • Stigma around diagnoses and labels is outdated!

  • We do not strive to "fix" variations in perceiving and interacting with the world - rather, we strive to build understanding and support for all individuals.

  • When we understand our unique brain, we feel empowered to advocate for our needs, find community and connection, and experience our best quality of life.

  • It is a basic human right to be understood and accepted for who we are.

  • With the right support, every individual can thrive in the environment of their choice.
