Neurodiversity is a concept that regards individuals with differences in brain function and behavioral traits as part of normal variation in the human population. 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.


The Stanford Neurodiversity Project provides comprehensive support to students with a variety of neurodiverse conditions, including autism, ADHD, and learning differences, as well as those without any formal diagnosis. Our model provides support in key areas including: academic, social, mental health, independent living, and career planning and preparation.

Transition Orientation 2020

Incoming Students: First-year and new transfers students will be welcomed to campus in the fall, subject to ongoing public health and safety guidance.

Neurodiversity Transition Orientation 2020: We will hold our Neurodiversity Transition Orientation, part of the Neurodiverse Student Support Program (NSSP) in an entirely virtual format. Because the academic calendar has been re-set to begin Autumn Quarter one week earlier on September 14, NSO administrators are currently in the process of finalizing dates. We are working closely with University Officials to adapt our programming and the dates of our virtual Neurodiversity Transition Orientation as circumstances require and will update our website as we are able to determine programming.

For more information: See our Neurodiversity Transition Orientation page for more information on program logistics, curriculum, and application. You can also complete the NSSP interest form and a staff member will contact you with more information.
