Training and support

We will be launching a range of training programmes, resources and detailing our consultancy offer to support organisations in their development. Alongside this we are also working on wider support for those wishing to develop their individual practice - see below for more.

The Museums and Neurodiversity Network

The network seeks to provide an opportunity for individuals to share their experiences and insights, exchange ideas and collaborate towards our shared goal of creating a more understanding, equitable and neurodivergent-friendly museum sector. Learning together and calling out good and bad practice. The network is neurodiverse - consisting of both neurodivergent members and members of the neuromajority. Not all of our members come from museums, everyone has varying experience and backgrounds both professionally and personally. The network currently meets online quarterly, typically on a Tuesday 10:30 - 12:00. We are looking to add a second meeting each quarter hosted on an evening. We work to ensure these meetings are accessible. All are welcome and its free to join the network, to do so just come along to a meeting!

Keep posted here, subscribe to our mailing list, or follow us on twitter, for more info.

The Neurodiverse Museum Conference 2024

The Neurodiverse Museum is working hard to change the way museums work with and for neurodivergent people.

To ensure that this discussion happens on a sector wide scale, and is a dialogue that is led by neurodivergent people, we have created The Neurodiverse Museum Conference!

Collecting practices – reflecting neurodivergent lives and experiences

When people think about neurodivergent audiences, they tend to think about accessibility. However, as with all audiences and individuals, neurodivergent people want to see themselves reflected in the displays and provision of museums. This training session supports understanding and confidence in this area, and provides practical advice and examples to implement. Coming soon…..

Training to understand different neurotypes

Over the coming months, we’ll be developing training which supports specific understanding of different neurotypes and the adjustments and support to increase access and relevance within museums. Coming soon.
