Celebrate Neuro Pride 2022!
✨ 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.
✨ 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.
We are looking forward to seeing you!
We are going to post our event schedule and sign-up information soon!
