The Nourishing Neurodiversity Conference will focus on highlighting the importance of inclusivity in traditional evidence- based treatment approaches by embracing neurodivergent voices and treatment provider perspectives.


  • Participants will have a better understanding of the considerations and accommodations needed in treatment of neurodiverse populations.
  • Participants will learn from people with lived experience of both eating disorders and neurodiversity.
  • Participants will learn how to cultivate a recovery focused environment where their neurodiverse clients can feel safe and supported.
