JOIN THE HUSKIES FOR NEURODIVERSITY TEAM!

Winner of the 2021-2022 Husky Seed Fund Award, Huskies for Neurodiversity is a student-led initiative that promotes visibility and acceptance of neurodiversity at UW campus and beyond. Spearheaded by a team with two neurodivergent students, our goal is to destigmatize and educate about neurodiversity and disability accommodations on campus to students and faculty, as well as provide a platform for neurodivergent individuals to share their stories and experiences in their own voice.

We hope to accomplish this in three big ways:

Website: Our website will feature the lived experiences of neurodivergent people as told from their own perspective, as well as provide credible articles and resources about a vast array of topics relevant to neurodiversity.

Research: Our research subcommittee will research topics on neurodiversity and write and publish articles and other multimedia pieces related to neurodiversity to our website.

Panel: Our panel will feature neurodivergent students and professionals answering questions about their experiences with neurodiversity throughout their life, and how they have transitioned to adulthood. It will feature small group discussions and engaging activities to teach the community about the social model of disability and accessibility.

 

Neurodivergent students are highly encouraged to apply. Flyers are attached to this email. Detailed job descriptions and application forms are available at the following links:
