Welcoming Neurodivergent People: Skill Up

The Unitarian Universalist Association and Unitarian Universalist Ministers Association are launching a series of interviews and live Q&A to speak on neurodivergence, neurotypicality, and ableism. We hope it is informational for people of all neurotypes!

This series is an invitation into a deeper journey. One that will likely include dissonance and even disagreement. We expect this and welcome it. It will invite all of us to more deeply untangle our internalized ableism and to more clearly perceive the ableism in our communities. Read more about how we got to this series and where we hope it might take us.
