Neurodiversity Affirming Practice
29 November 2022
The London Early Years Network is hosting this online session that will provide an introduction to neurodiversity including some key terms and concepts and how these relate to early years musical practice

Led by Kerry Murphy, an early childhood specialist with a background in neurodiversity, disability and behaviour, this session will explore some critical questions:

  • In what ways might our work be based on ableist assumptions or deficit perspectives?
  • We often find ourselves having to link our musical work to broader assessment systems – what norms are these based on and who do they exclude?
  • Does our musical work encourage neurodivergent children to mimic neurotypical children?

By the end of the session we’ll hope to have some ideas for how we can move towards neurodiversity affirming musical practice and inclusion for neurodivergent children. There’ll be time for reflection and discussion, and resources will be provided and circulated after the session.

The session runs from 6-8pm.
