How can we invest?
An index is a hypothetical basket of stocks, so you cannot invest in it directly.
Although this Index is listed publicly, it is currently only available for investing directly through our firm. We work with many of the top custodians, such as TD Ameritrade, Schwab, Fidelity, and more to place the trades directly in your account as a registered investment advisor.
Planning Across The Spectrum and Tenpath Financial Group are the sole owners of The Neurodiversity Index and are able to track/replace the brokerage performance of the index inside your individual brokerage account. The index allows for transparency, and to state publicly, we are investing in neurodiversity.
Although it is not currently an ETF (Exchanged Traded Fund) or Mutual Fund, we hope to be able to provide one in the future, to make Neurodiverse investing more accessible to all.

What is Neurodiversity?
“Neurodiversity” simply means “brain diversity.” Basically, neurodiversity refers to the fact that the manner in which people learn, socialize, process emotions, and conduct many other mental functions varies significantly. But neurodiversity is not just a term; it also represents a broader concept, a concept that was created to push back against toxic and dangerous ways of understanding people with neurodevelopmental disorders. Neurodiversity as a concept not only identifies certain people, such as autistic people, as neurodiverse, but also seeks to influence the way in which we as a society view people whom we understand as neurodiverse. Specifically, it seeks to influence us to focus more on the unique strengths that neurodiverse people have, and less on their perceived “weaknesses.”
