Celebrate Neuro Pride 2022!

Join us from the 4th to the 8th of August – let’s celebrate Neurodivergent people, community, and culture! For more information, see our FAQ.

For event updates, see our event page or our Google Calendar.

✨ Celebrate Neurodivergent People ✨

Learn about us, from us! We are starting a series of ‘Ask me anything’ webinars where our community members share their experience in different areas of life. In our short ‘Neuro Myths’ videos, community members will debunk common misconceptions. And our virtual Neuro Pride Parade will be an opportunity for everyone to show their pride and support. 

Get involved: Send us your questions, messages of support, and pride selfies! For more information, see our submission page.

✨ Celebrate Neurodivergent Community ✨

Let’s meet up! We are back this year with a variety of virtual meetups such as our Welcome Drop In, Newbie Meet, Mental Health Check-in, Activist Meet, Art Session, Parent Chat, LGBTQ+ Meet, and Game Night. There will also be community-led picnics in different locations.

Get involved: Join our Facebook group (ND/questioning adults only) or Discord Server (with an ally area) to chat with like-minded people and organise your own local summer meetup!

✨ Celebrate Neurodivergent Culture ✨

We would like to share one of the best things about ND culture: our interests and hobbies. We will create an Interest Island on our website and social media where community members can share their passion and joy, as well as Lightning Talks on Zoom: Friday, 5th August, 7-9pm.

Get involved: Send us a blog post, pictures, or short video about your hobby or interest! For more information: see our submission page. Get in touch if you would like to do a lightning talk!

We are looking forward to seeing you!

We are going to post our event schedule and sign-up information soon!

In the meanwhile, you can have a look at last year’s art gallery, poetry corner, and Youtube videos. If you want to find out more about Neuro Pride, have a look at our values and our team. Please get in touch if you would like to volunteer with us!

ABA is not the answer
  

ABA is not the answer. It asks the wrong question.

In this post, Sarah Dwan (Life Through My Lens) explains why ABA is harmful and what therapies to choose instead to address concrete needs and struggles in a neuro-affirmative way.

We asked members of the Autistic community in Ireland to share why they are proud to be Autistic. Al, an architect and widowed father of three, kindly shared his beautifully, brutally honest story.
