Dear Members of the Neurodiversity Community:
With much excitement, we would like to invite you to our second virtual Stanford Neurodiversity Summit from November 7 to 9, 2021. This virtual summit is a unique conference bringing together neurodiverse / neurodivergent individuals, employers, service agencies, educators and students, parents, and professionals from all areas of the field. Confirmed keynote speakers include Dr. Temple Grandin from Colorado, US Congresswoman Jessica Benham of Pennsylvania, Dr. Rhonda Moore from the National Institute of Mental Health, Sir Simon Baron-Cohen from University of Cambridge, Professor Yong Zhao of University of Kansas, and Professor Anand Prahlad of University of Missouri. We estimate that we will have about 70 to 90 speakers this year. In last year’s summit, we had over 3200 attendees who represent most stakeholder groups.
We are planning the conference with Universal Design in mind, to maximize accessibility and inclusion; we want neurodiverse individuals to participate. Please click here to see the preliminary program for the summit. You are also invited to explore Accessibility Guidelines to learn about how our group increases accessibility of the conference.
To ensure that you can enjoy the scheduled activities in the summit, I encourage you to register today. Registration is free and open until the tickets are sold out. All sessions will be recorded and made available to the public approximately a month after the conference. We look forward to seeing you at the summit in November.
