Neurodivergent Drop-In Space

Neurodivergent Drop-In Spaces

February 8, 2022

2:00 PM - 2:50 PM

Eligibility: The Neurodivergent Drop-In Space is open to all students who identify as neurodivergent. This includes students who are autistic or who have ADHD, sensory processing disorder, Tourette’s, or another learning disability (dyslexia, dyscalculia, dyspraxia, dysgraphia, etc.). You do not need to have a formal diagnosis to participate in this space, and students who are questioning whether they may be neurodivergent are invited to participate as well. You do not need to have a specific concern related to being a neurodivergent student to use this space.

More Information: This space adheres to a strengths-based, neurodiversity-affirming model and provides a welcoming environment for neurodivergent students. Students are encouraged to come as they are, and you can take off the mask, stim, infodump, use AAC, and engage in special interests (or learn what these terms mean!) to your heart’s content. We also discuss topics like self-advocacy in the classroom and healthcare settings, building relationships, testing and accommodations, and challenges of navigating a world designed for neurotypical people.

If there is anything we can do to make this space more accessible, or if you have specific questions about this space, please contact Dr. Palmieri.
