ThinkGeek + ASAN's Neurodiversity shirt!

Yay, Neurodiversity!

Celebrate neurodiversity!

Autism Acceptance Month fast approaches!

April is almost upon us, which means it's time to celebrate cranial diversity.

We appreciate all the different shapes & sizes your brains come in. They're what make you YOU. So here at ThinkGeek World Domination HQ, we're all about embracing the differences in neurological configurations. Whether you have been diagnosed with autism or are a "neurotypical," you have ADHD, are bipolar, whoever you are, whatever unique configuration of neurons makes you you, we think you're pretty awesome, just the way you are.

Autistic Self Advocacy Network

Once again, we're teaming up with the Autistic Self Advocacy Network to bring you the Neurodiversity shirt Version 3.0 (also available in Kids' sizes). Until the end of April of 2014, 100% of the proceeds from this shirt (after April $1 a shirt) will be donated to ASAN.

For those not familiar, ASAN is a nonprofit organization run by and for Autistic people. ASAN was created to provide support for people on the Autistic spectrum and to provide a genuinely autistic voice in the world, bringing autistic people to the forefront of community conversation about autism.

Thank you for your brains! All variations of them.

meaningless icon! As the mom of a brilliant, geeky, autistic 6-year-old (who I'm pretty sure is going to be a mad scientist when he grows up), I am so very happy to see this!

meaningless icon! Like it. Glad it is a broader spectrum with the design of the shirt. Of course I'm missing parts of my brain, so it doesn't quite resemble my noodle :D .

meaningless icon! Thank you thank you THANK YOU. This family loves a non-verbal autistic almost 3 year old, and I'll be getting one for all the taller members of the household. Thank you for teaming up to bring awareness to diversity and autism.
