For schools or universities

Our school years can strongly influence who we are and our attitudes towards others. By adopting a neurodiversity-affirming approach at your school or university, you can grow a more understanding community that celebrates students’ strengths and interests and fosters an appreciation of others’ differences. Our resources can provide information to create an autism-positive learning environment.
