Art needs neurodiversity just as much as neruodiversity needs art. The performing arts field offers a unique opportunity for individuals with neurodiverse traits to find their voice, communicate lived experiences and showcase their authentic talents through various forms of artistic expressions. Research from the American Medical Association suggests that art has been used for both expression as well as sharing diverse perspectives with others and can also hold the potential to reduce stigma around disability (ABA Journal of Ethics 2016). Therefore, creating neuro-inclusive spaces within the arts is exceptionally important to help individuals embrace and unlock their unique potentials in psychologically safe spaces. This presentation will discuss evidence-based strategies from the science of behavior analysis (ABA) and the framework of Universal Designs of Learning (UDL) to promote neuro-affirming learning opportunities within the performing art arenas. Both these approaches aim to optimize environments to produce socially significant behavior (Travers & Jason 2016) and can be used to promote valuable contributions of brain-based differences into the arts.


Learning Objectives:

Attendees will:

  • learn how awareness of neurodiverse traits can support inclusive and person centered interaction while encouraging authentic creativity
  • identify behavioral methods to utilize multiple means of representation within teaching and build on strength-based learning 
  • identify positive experiences that art has brought to the discovery of individuality and expression, self advocacy and independence
