The Association For Electronic Music has announced new research into neurodiversity within the electronic music industry.

A survey has been launched to gather insight on what it is like to work in the music for people diagnosed with autism, ADHD, dyslexia, dyscalculia, dyspraxia and Tourette Syndrome. The results will be used to provide information for both organisations and individuals on how to support neurodiverse music industry professionals at work.

“For the past five years, AFEM has made championing mental health awareness central to our work”, says the organisation’s Tristan Hunt. “While we’re heartened to see a big increase across the industry in people’s understanding and support of mental health, the subject of neurodiversity still is new or not well known to many. AFEM’s new neurodiversity survey aims to change that”.

“By taking part in this survey”, he adds, “you will help create an industry that better understands and supports people with neurodiverse conditions, so making it a happier and healthier place for everyone who works in it”.
