Therapy Advocacy Education

Established January 2018

Neurodiversity is “…the diversity of human brains and minds – the infinite variation in neurocognitive functioning within our species.”  “Neurodiversity is a biological fact. It’s not a perspective, an approach, a belief, a political position, or a paradigm.” 
Dr. Nick Walker

The Neurodiversity Movement is a Human Rights Movement. “The Neurodiversity Movement says that people with brain-based disabilities (like autism, intellectual disabilities, learning disabilities, or mental health disabilities) should be accepted and included in society just like neurotypical people (people without brain-based disabilities).” –  Autistic Self Advocacy Network

Therapist Neurodiversity Collective was founded on January 11, 2018.


Our Mission:

  • to provide free public access to non-behavioral based, trauma-informed, neurodiversity paradigm aligned therapists
  • to advocate for acceptance and equitable inclusion for the neurodivergent and other-disabled populations we serve 
  • to provide neurodivergent-affirming education to therapists and to the public about non-behavioral therapy practices and methodologies that presume competence, are non-trauma inducing, and respect human rights, dignity, and sensory preferences

On June 17, Therapist Neurodiversity Collective is delighted to welcome "autism and social cognition and stigma" researcher Desiree Jones in a live DEI professional development webinar specially designed for neurodiversity-affirming SLPs, OTs, PTs, and Assistants: "Racial Disparities in Autism".

Bio: Desi is a 4th year doctoral student at the University of Texas at Dallas, working under the supervision of Dr. Noah Sasson. Her research focuses on how autistic people are perceived by their peers, and how these perceptions impact the experiences of autistic adults. Desi is also interested in how factors intrinsic to the individual, such as race and gender, further influence the intersectional experiences of autistic people. Prior to joining UTD, Desi worked as a research assistant at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. In 2020, she received her MS in Applied Cognition and Neuroscience from UTD.

For more information about this DEI professional development opportunity and to access all the others in our Neurodiversity-Affirming Practice Series for SLPs, OTs, PTs, and Assistants, go to: therapistndc.org/become-a-member-of-the-collective/
