Need inspiration for the experience you might host? 

Lately, Kudoers (persons with a cognitive disability who go on experiences) have been asking for Experiences (one-on-one meetings between a Host and Kudoer where learning is exchanged) that would help them understand more about their specific disability. Like people living with Autism are asking for someone who knows more about Autism to share their know-how.

This is big. 

Kudoers come from a system where often they were given labels and diagnoses that aren’t explained very well. So having people want to not only go deeper, but to know more about the things that directly impact them is exciting!

Experiences that allow self-exploration on this level are a new development. We are working hard to honour this curiosity by adding experiences to the Catalogue around this topics and other topics Kudoers are asking for.
