It Takes All Kinds Of Minds (ITAKOM for short) is an international conference entirely focused on the far-reaching concept of neurodiversity.

The meeting will draw together personal, practitioner and academic experience. Our goal is to present not only the latest knowledge, but also visions for the future of embracing neurodiversity. We believe that bringing together different perspectives can help us to better understand neurodiversity and create a neurodiversity affirmative world.

ITAKOM will leave no mind behind.

Why attend

This event is for anyone who believes in a society that embraces the differences between people. These differences are apparent in diagnoses like autism, ADHD, dyslexia, dyspraxia, Down syndrome, fragile x syndrome, Tourette syndrome and many others.

It Takes All Kinds of Minds is not just the conference name, but also the conference ethos. Over 50 speakers will include neuroscientists and nutritionists; campaigners, clinicians, comedians; actors, artists and activists to name just a few. All of them will be providing insights into how to better understand our differences, capture the richness of neurodiversity, and provide effective support where it is needed.

Whether you are already familiar with the concept of neurodiversity, or the idea is quite new to you, you will find something for you at this conference!
