Getting Started: Serving Neurodiverse Audiences

Museums are places of learning for everyone. As museum professionals, we are always working to make museums more accessible, but that can be a daunting task. Katerina will share her experiences making the Connecticut Historical Society more accessible. This process began with little prior knowledge about neurodiverse audiences and has resulted in the creation of sensory bags, a social narrative, and several sensory-friendly program initiatives. Museum professionals will leave the workshop with a foundation on which to build, practical steps to take, and a list of resources to help their museum become more accessible to neurodiverse audiences.
