This bespoke workshop, part of our Youth Theatre for Everyone strand of training, will introduce the audience to the concept of neurodiversity through the eyes and of an experienced leader in the field using a case studies-based approach.

The second half of the event will focus on practical skills and scenario-based conversations about how to better support neurodiversity in our youth theatres. Taking place online, be prepared to participate in discussions and share your experience.

The YTAS sector training programme is supported by funding from the Gannochy Trust and Creative Scotland.

Who is it for?

Practitioners: For those on the front line of creative delivery. Training that is for ‘practitioners’ is for anyone who engages directly with young people in the creative process.

Freelancers: For those of you who are braving it on your own. Training for ‘freelancers’ will be spaces designed to investigate the unique challenges that come from working contractually for multiple organisations.
