Become a Young
Neurodiversity Champion
in 2024

Join our team and stand up for the rights of neurodiverse young people in our education system

One in 5 - or 320,000 - young people in New Zealand are neurodiverse. They have brains wired to think, learn, perceive the world and feel differently from neurotypical people.

The Neurodiversity in Education Coalition brings together organisations working at the frontlines in our education system. We see every day the failure of that system to provide for the needs of neurodiverse ākonga, and we see the massive individual, community and economic cost of that failure.  


We are standing together to demand change so that neurodiverse young people can unlock their enormous potential, and confidence in who they are.


Stand together with us - there are lots of ways to join in.
