PRAGNYA -Preparing Resources & Alliances Galvanizing NeurodiversitY Acculturation
To create an “Awakening” of the “Pure Soul” that is basic to us as “Human Beings” building a non-judgemental world that is accepting of all, welcoming of diversity, ensuring everyone has the freedom and authority with the adequate support to lead a life of dignity.
Creating Real World experiences for the Neurodiverse community to acclimatize to the Neurotypical Community.
Preparing the Resources and Allies in the Neurotypical community to support these experiences by “Acculturating” to the Neurodiverse Community.
Over one in seven children in the United States is born with a developmental difference that hinders them from acculturating into neurotypical society, a society that is not equipped to support them to lead successful and fulfilling lives. Every single Neurodiverse individual is unique— thus requiring unique support, unique perspective and unique opportunity. Keeping this at the forefront of our mission, PRAGNYA develops programs that successfully support Neurodiverse individuals through community integration programs, academic augmentation programs and social experiential programs.
Pragnya's two-fold Approach...
The PRAGNYA Community Integration Initiative provides participants with weekend programs that include community activities and integrated volunteer experiences that develop a sense of belonging for the Neurodiverse individuals, while also providing them the Neurotypical peer circles of support to aid in this process. Based on the individual and family-centric approach, the programs utilize a variety of trained Ally (peer) support, group activities, educational workshops, and community based activities.
The PRAGNYA “Ally”ship training program trains Neurotypical children and adults alike to become the much-needed “circles of support” for neurodiverse individuals, to help them feel accepted, maintain stability, and balance in their lives as part of the community. PRAGNYA Allies support Neurodiverse individuals into developing the sense of belonging and the confidence needed to actively engage as valued individuals in the local community.
