Neurodiversity.

Who We Are

We are a grassroots group of parents, therapists, educators, and other professionals who are passionate about promoting neurodiversity affirming practices and improving the quality of life of neurodivergent folx in our communities. 

 

Our Mission and Vision

Come As You Are (CAYR) Connections was founded to support and empower the neurodivergent community in the greater Chicago area. Our mission is to increase the accessibility of inclusive, neurodiversity-affirming resources to families, childcare centers, schools, and organizations.

We envision a world where inclusivity and accessibility are the norm, not the exception. Our dream is to open a neuro-affirming, trauma-informed school where children of all neurotypes can learn from each other.
