The Center for Neurodiversity Research and Innovation (CNRI) envisions a society in which every individual, regardless of neurodiverse profile, is accepted, included, and given evidence-based assistance and resources. CNRI strives to develop research, training, services, and community engagement through joint efforts between Binghamton University and Christ University in order to improve the quality of life for neurodiverse individuals and encourage greater understanding and inclusion in society.
At CNRI, our mission is to establish evidence-based research and innovations in practice that will improve access, reduce barriers, develop life-changing supports and training, for individuals across the neurodiverse spectrum thereby fostering a world where every mind is celebrated and included.
