About the Neurodiversity Foundation
The Neurodiversity Foundation realizes projects to bridge the gap between people with different brains, in the belief that the best future is one in which there is room for everyone, regardless of what kind of brain you have. We are a relatively small foundation (including volunteers about 25 people) with great ambitions. Our organization consists of three mutually reinforcing branches: Innovation&Research, Pride&Awareness and Education&Community.
In terms of innovation, we are developing a new type of robot/hand gesture messenger that helps in neurodiverse communication in families; Family signs.
In terms of Organization, we annually organize the Neurodiversity Pride Day, support Brain Awareness Week with activities, and conduct an ‘acceptance, inclusion & appreciation campaign’ through social media throughout the year.
In terms of education, the foundation has established the Neurodiversity Education Academy, which provides courses and training for professionals in the field, including many teachers. The goal of the Academy is to make schools and classrooms more neurodiverse-friendly. The My Amazing Brain magazine, online webinars, and the Brainy app are also part of this.
If there is no position listed, but you still think you can make a major contribution to the projects of the foundation, or to the technological projects of the Athens Consortium, feel free to email us. In that case it is important for us to know what contribution you could make, or which project or task you could support well.
