Our Mission

The Mission of Minnesota Neurodivergent Education Advocacy and Therapy Services (MnNEAT) is to support meaningful inclusion of ND people across the lifespan into the world of their choosing. We support and uphold their rights to live authentically, and ensure equitable access to our services through engagement of mentors who represent the diversity of the ND community.
