It's a day to get out of hiding and take pride in being uniquely different from the rules. It's a day to celebrate the uniqueness of your own neurological potential.
NeurodiversityCelebration Week is a global initiative that challenges stereotypes and misconceptions about neurological differences. Its goal is to transform the way neurodivergent people are perceived and supported, providing schools, universities, and organizations with the opportunity to recognize the many talents and advantages of being neurodivergent, while creating more inclusive and equitable cultures that celebrate differences and empower all people.
The Week of Celebrating Neurodiversity is supported by more than 20 charities and many organizations, including the United Nations Envoy for Youth. The neurodiverse community actively advocates for a deeper understanding and recognition of individual experience, beyond general awareness of “conditions” and labels. The Week of Celebrating Neurodiversity has been featured on ITV News, in Carmen Sandiego's series entitled “Fearless Kids Around the World”, on the BBC, The New Scientist, The Guardian and Forbes. More than 1,400 schools and 685,000 students from around the world have registered to participate in the Neurodiversity Celebration Week through themed events, guest speakers and awareness campaigns.
