Aimed at providing museums and wider cultural sector staff with a clear understanding of neurodivergence as well as practical ideas to increase accessibility and relevant provision.
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!

Drawing together museum staff who wish to develop their understanding and practice of neurodivergence to discuss and engage with each other about furthering neurodivergent access, representation, and workforce.
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…..
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.
