The HANDLE Institute is an innovative nonprofit dedicated to individuals with neurodevelopmental challenges and supporting the providers who assist them to function easier and be happier. The HANDLE Institute envisions a world in which loving and connected people - aware of interrelating factors that contribute to struggles experienced in sensation, function, or interaction - live in acceptance of neurodiversity and empower one another in gentle ways.
