ND Pride Hungary

Welcome to Neurodiversity Pride Hungary! 

ND Pride Hungary is made by and for all neurodivergents and their allies. Everybody, of every neurotype, is welcome to join the celebration. 

Celebrate Neurodiversity and Embrace Your Uniqueness!

On June 16th, we celebrate the positive power of neurodiversity and embrace the differences of neurodivergent individuals. In 2024, Hungary joins the ND Pride celebrations for the first time. It’s a day of pride, created for and by the community, and supported by ND Pride Hungary projectleader Zsuzsanna Reed, director of Kisvilág (SmallWorld) Foundation and the Neurodiversity Foundation.  

What is Neurodiversity?

Neurodiversity is a concept that refers to the diverse ways in which brains function, perceive, and understand the world. It emphasizes the importance of recognizing and appreciating the unique strengths and abilities that arise from neurological variations.

It advocates for providing the necessary support and accommodations to neurodivergent individuals so they can thrive in a society typically tailored to those who meet the norm. The core idea behind this concept is that this diversity is invaluable to society as a whole, even when it deviates from the conventional norm.

Autistics, ADHD individuals, gifted individuals, people with OCD, dyslexics (and many other neurodivergent groups) all possess unique thinking patterns, and their diversity and individuality enrich the world in many ways.

It is essential to acknowledge that neurodivergent individuals have something special to offer, and they may proudly embrace their own identity. Through Neurodiversity Pride, attention is drawn to this, both individually and collectively, both ceremonially and informally. Celebrate neurodiversity: Celebrate your own way!
