Artists, Parents, Children, Teachers, Supervisors and Neurodiverse themselves come together to learn, share their stories and enhance learning for themselves and othes diagnosed as neurodiverse. Ripefruit.orgs work will empower the Neurodiverse to share their stories host support meetings, and work with artists to create what lessons. Best of all we plan to create quantitatives to gauge neurovariance and advocate for industry change in the area.
