    Pride & Awareness

    Awareness & Pride, for all neurodivergents: Neurodiversity information and support campaigns. Via video series, social media campaigns, serious games, workshops, and through politics (supporting neurodiverse friendly politicians with a Neuroinclusive Politician Award, and direct proposals). We show our pride, by organizing the  Neurodiversity Pride Day- run, each year in June.    

    Education & Belonging

    Education about the value of (neuro)diversity: My Amazing Brain – magazine, distribution and campaign to support neurodiverse friendly classrooms. Also, we created the Neurodiversity Education Academy with free courses, supported by apps. As well as webinars on the topic. Neurodiversity also maintains the Brainy App, which was build by our researchpartner 2Tango.  

    Mainstreaming neurodiversity

    We aim to mainstream the concept of neurdiversity to support a societal shift: An additional long-term but more local focus since our early days, starting preparations in 2016, has been to introduce the concept of Neurodiversity in the Netherlands and make it a more well-known and used word that has direct and indirect positive impact on behaviours and attitude between Neurodivergents and Neurotypicals.

    What we offer

    Since the start of our organization, we had many requests of corporate, governmental and non-profit organizations and teams, to support them in the topic of neurodiversity. Each with their own request. The Neurodiversity Foundation serves the cause of the ability of neurodivergents to thrive, and/or the power of neurodiversity to manifest, and the work setting is one of our areas we facilitate. We have a list of services we can provide, and use the income to support our charitable projects of our focus areas.

    “Neurodiversity, means all of us.”
