The Power of Disability Representation in DEI
We recognize that there are many points of view regarding Neurodiversity and Autism Spectrum Disorders.
We do our best to provide the most up-to-date information and resources, but we know that we may not always get it right.
We invite feedback, even if it's negative, as long as it's constructive. We try our best to be open-minded, to learn from our mistakes, and to continuously improve. Thank you.
