neurodiversity celebration week 2020 events
MARCH 16 - 20
As part of Neurodiversity Celebration Week on March 16 - 20 we are staging a Blogaton on our forum - a chain of simple straightforward accounts of neurodiverse experience from neurodivergent people and neurotypical allies. It could be a proper blog post or just a couple of paragraphs about your experience and thoughts.
