The Stanford Neurodiversity Project is a grassroots effort aimed at promoting neurodiversity, a concept that regards individuals with differences in brain function and behavioral traits as part of normal variation in the human population. Among their objectives are .. to establish a culture that treasures the strengths of neurodiverse individuals, maximize the potential of neurodiversity and to disseminate their model locally, nationally and internationally. 

The movement of Neurodiversity is about uncovering the strengths of neurodiverse individuals and utilizing their talents to increase innovation and productivity of the society as a whole.” – Stanford Neurodiversity Project Website
