WHAT WE DO
We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit foundation dedicated to the identification and advocacy of teens and adults who are on the spectrum, as well as those with accompanying conditions such as Dyslexia and other learning differences including Twice Exceptional (2e).
Our goal is to empower teens and adults on the ASD spectrum and increase awareness of how neurodiversity’s many strengths and talents improve society for everybody.
We primarily do this through supporting neurodiverse entrepreneurs and providing personalized mentorship.

OUR KEY MESSAGE
Advocating neurodiverse talents through
self-discovery, mentorship, and advocacy.
We work with and mentor formally and
self-diagnosed neurodiverse adults by empowering them with individualized accommodations, which positions them for future life success.
Neurodiverse teens and adults are both under-diagnosed and misunderstood. There are few, if any employment opportunities available to these members of our community.
WE RAISE AWARENESS AND ACCEPTANCE BY
Initiatives that directly benefit the neurodiverse community including public awareness. The general public and employers are both underinformed and ill-informed when it comes to neurodiversity and its many benefits. Additionally, we provide information and training for employers, educators and first responders.
Evidence based, peer reviewed research in neurodiversity as well as entrepreneurial concepts and offerings for those of us who are neurodiverse. Our experienced board includes seasoned experts in finance, marketing and operations that act as a “fractional C suite” for neurodiverse entrepreneurs.
The current and historical achievements, benefits, and successes of neurodiverse individuals through general awareness, media opportunities, and speaking engagements.
An annual symposium that combines social interaction and accommodations with the latest empirical and academic recommendations for neurodiverse adults.
A neurodiverse retreat, think tank, and community designed to provide neurodiverse late teens and adults with two-week programs that include practical accommodations, a focus on identifying special interests, and turning those interests into rewarding and fulfilling careers.
A book and theatrical film based on the true life of an undiagnosed neurodiverse adult, with the intent of increasing public understanding and acceptance of ASD neurodiversity. We view this as a critical step to broader public understanding and awareness.
Greater understanding of the neurodiverse community via “train the trainer” exchanges with educators, community leaders, first responders, religious and secular organizations.
