ND Pride Belgium

Neurodiversity Pride USA

Welcome to Neurodiversity Pride USA! 

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

Celebrate Neurodivergent Uniqueness, Celebrate Neurodiversity!

On June 16th, we celebrate the positive power of neurodiversity and embrace the differentness of neurodivergent individuals. In May 2024, New York officiated Neurodiversity Pride Day as the first American city, and will hoist the Neurodiversity Strengh Flag in celebration of this day of pride for all neurodivergent people. Also, there will be a online program with speakers and a special keynote by Sadie Dingefelder.



There are activities worldwide, and you are invited to organize your own, to celebrate, your own way, in your own way. The core tradition of celebrating Neurodiversity Pride Day, is for neurodivergents to take a moment, a minute, an hour, to reflect on what makes them proud of their ND self.  Neurodiversity Pride Day is a day created for and by the neurodivergent community, and supported by ND Pride NY projectleader Dave Thompson and the EU-based 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 the neuromajority. Autistics, ADHD individuals, gifted individuals, people with OCD, dyslexics (and many other neurodivergent groups, innate and acquired, diagnosed and self-identified) have uniquely different thinking patterns, and their diversity and individuality enrich the world in many ways. And if you are ND, there is nothing wrong with you, instead, ask yourself: Whats STRONG with you?

Celebrate neurodiversity: Celebrate your own way!

Program & Activities

Neurodiversity Pride Activities – June 16th

Neurodiversity Pride Day Flaghoisting

The Neurodiversity Strength Flag, created by ND Advocate Josh Mirsky, and officiated by the New York Senate, will be hoisted on Neurodiversity Pride Day 2024. 

Aside New York, there are other places in the USA where the Neurodiversity Pride Day flag, the Neurodiversity Strenght Flag or the Infinity Flag is hoisted: any flag that supports the intent of the day is valid.

The traditional Neurodiversity Pride Day protocol of hoisting a flag, starts with participants assembling around the flagpole, and may start with introductory words from a neurodivergent advocate, organizer or local official. As the flag goes up, participants are invited to think of all neurodivergents worldwide, in all their struggles and challenges, and be in solidarity with each of them. As the flag is completely raised, participants are invited to reflect on how neurodiversity makes the world a more beautiful place. Organizers may deviate from this traditional protocol. 

All flags hoisted on Neurodiversity Pride Day, or in ND Pride Week, are requested to  be lowered on June 17th the latest, to respectfully make space for any Autistic Pride Day celebration. 


Local Activities

There are many local events and activities for neurodivergent people.

These activities are not listed on this page, but often are workshops, webinars, talks, picknicks, colored-socks events, sports activities and so much more.
