Commitment to Neuro-Affirmative practice:

We expect all professionals listing services on our website to adhere to our standards for Neuro-Affirmative Practice (see below).

While we each have our own experiences, expertise and autonomy, core to this community is a commitment to respectful, neuro-affirmative practice. Each practitioner who wishes to list services must consent they agree with the principles outlined below.

We commit to these signposts of a Neuro-Affirmative respectful practitioner:

*inspired by the Therapist Neurodiversity Collective International

  • We presume competence
  • We offer alternative & augmentative communication methods
  • We advocate for self-determination
  • We advocate for inclusion
  • We facilitate self-advocacy skills
  • We do not support ABA practice or any methodologies that teach compliance
  • We take a strengths-based approach
  • We respect each client’s autonomy
  • We respectfully appreciate intersectionality in both ourselves and our clients & work to unpack any privilege we may have
  • We are actively anti-racist
  • We are LGBTQIA+ affirmative
  • We actively seek out CPD, research and learnings from other neurodivergent adults
  • We use identity-first language while respecting individual clients’ preferences

We do appreciate that each of us is on a personal journey of evolving our understanding and unpacking any privilege we hold and so if you would like support on your journey before wholeheartedly agreeing to the commitments outlined, we can signpost you to resources and further training (both free of charge and low-cost options will be signposted).

Are there any fees involved?

No, there is no cost to become a verified practitioner.
