Neurodiverse FamiLIEFDE Acties

Let’s celebrate our neurodivergent familiemembers!

What families can do to create “#FamiLIEFDE” during the ND Pride celebrations in June 2024?

Voor Ouders & Kinderen

Informatie over de dag: Op Neurodiversity Pride Day, elk jaar op 16 juni, vieren we de meerwaarde van neurodiversiteit en de positieve talenten en eigenschappen van neurodivergente mensen. Vier je mee met jouw familie?

Er wordt geschat dat 1 op 5 mensen in Nederland neurodivergent zijn: sowieso in je familie, en waarschijnlijk ook in je eigen gezin. Onder “ND” vallen autisten, adhders en dyslecten, maar er zijn ruim 100 typen ‘bijzondere breinen’ die hierbij horen.

Op deze mooie zondag in juni kun je de kans aangrijpen om iets leuks of extra liefs te doen, om een positieve boodschap van waardering, liefde of trots te geven aan je favoriete neurodivergente familielid.

Iets samen doen? Iets samen bezoeken? Iets liefs doen? Iets zelf doen? Of…… een gave actie van waardering?

Other FamiLIEFDE Actions

What families & friends can do to celebrate ND Pride from 10-17 June?

Organize an activity with the Fam

The most fun thing to do, is to organize to do something fun together. Offer options like a walk, a museum visit, a picknick, and allow the ND family member to choose.

Make a Pride collage

Make a photoshoot with your family members showing your pride.

Organize a movie-night or matinee

Make your own home cinema to show your ND related movie picks to your family. 

Go on an adventure

Do an activity that is fun for the ND(s) in your family. Check beforehand, what your favorite neurodivergent would love to do at least once. 

Shower ND Dads with love

Parenting rarely is a easy task. Find a way to shower ND dads with a colossal amount of extra love.

Take a minute to selfreflect: You-time

If you are ND and there is only one thing you do today, the main ritual of the day, is to take a moment, a minute, an hour, to self reflect on what beauty your own neurological differentness brings to the world. What makes you proud to be neurodivergent?

If your loved one is ND, also take a minute, to reflect on what beauty that person brings to your family.

Celebrate the day, your own way

While there are activities you can join, and activities you can do yourself, there are many ways to celebrate. Choose your own way. 

Go to a museum for free

A limited amount of museums in Leiden open their door for free, for neurodivergent people (and fam). Its a pilot program with selected museums, we want to grow this initiative in next years. Check out the ND Pride Leiden page to see which musea participate.

Join in any of the live activities on location

Neurodiversity Pride celebrations spring up from all over the world. Like… in Leiden, Groningen, but perhaps at many more places that are even closer to your family.

See the keynotes of the 7th edition of ND Pride

There will be keynotes from daring pioneers in the ND advocacy field. No tickets required. Look in the Familiefde events calendar below for links.

Do your own NeuroDance!

A 24hours DJ Raid Train created by DJ Neurodivergent DJ’s (Moonwyrm and the Wyrmlings) will be organized. It…. may be intense! Join the dance via your own screen from wherever you are. Do a dance with your fam!

Compliment another neurodivergent

One way to celebrate your favorite neurodivergent(s), is telling them what you like about them! Share a text, voicemessage, mail or phonecall today. While nobody is counting points: Yes, nephews, uncles, brothers and grandpas count for double points today.

How extra love to your (potentially) neurodivergent family members

The 7th edition of ND Pride coincides with Fathers Day. Today may be, a great day to show extra love to your ND kids, or your ND parent(s). 

Hoist a Flag for Neurodiversity Pride

If your house has a flagpole: Hoisting a flag is a great way to celebrate ND Pride. There are special ND Pride flags available in our flagstore, but any other flag may just be as valid. The ritual of the flag hoisting is: when the flag goes up, we think of all other neurodivergents worldwide, and when the flag is hoisted fully, its a memory that diversity make the world more beautiful.

Coming Out: share your Neurodivergent nature with those you love

June may be the best month, coming out for your own neurodivergence to those you love. Perhaps today, may be the day, to tell your family about who you really are.


Go on a lunch together. Give another a compliment, with every bite.

Invite a Parknick

Invite others for a pot-luck style picknick in a park, beach or forest. You may have speakers, but alternatively, you can just meet each other too.

Make photos to remember the day

Make a Family-selfie for ND Pride, a…… Famfie? To share, showing your family pride to others, or …to keep as a memory, just for yourself and your loved ones.

Take your Stride

Whether its a walking march with fun outfits, or a sports feat of excellence, its all welcome today. Due to funding barriers, we’ve had to delay the ND Fam-Marathon around the world another year, but you can race your family, march your own path in outfits, or compete with a 20 meter moonwalk game.
