California BrainWaves, a Nonprofit for Neurodiversity

Our Mission is to increase support for neurodiversity in the way of housing, employment, education, research, medical care, specialized training, legal aid, and community systems.

Our Vision is to develop pivotal live/work/learn/play therapeutic campuses for people with brain and developmental disabilities and their loved ones, preventing traumatizing and expensive family separations. At California BrainWaves, staff, caregivers, and neurotypical siblings are also a priority in receiving support. In addition, we focus on de-stigmatizinneurodiversity.
