The Association for Electronic Music has announced new research on neurodiversity within the electronic music industry.
A survey has been launched to gather information about what it is like to work in music for people with autism, ADHD, dyslexia, dyscalculia, dyspraxia and Tourette syndrome. The results will be used to provide information to organizations and individuals on how to support neurodiverse music industry professionals at work.
“Over the past five years, AFEM has made mental health awareness a central part of our work,” says the organization’s Tristan Hunt. “While we are heartened to see a surge in the industry’s understanding and support of people’s mental health, the topic of neurodiversity is still new or little known to many. AFEM’s new survey of neurodiversity aims to change that.”
“By participating in this survey,” he adds, “you will help create an industry that better understands and supports people with neurodiverse conditions, making it a happier, healthier place for everyone who works in it.” .
