The goal of this study is to develop a toolkit and an educational resource that will include a set of recommended practices to apply a neurodivergent lens to the development of standards in Canada. Guided by the active engagement of the neurodivergent community, our work will contribute to the reduction and elimination of barriers for neurodivergent Canadians.
