Neurodiversity in Electronic Music Industry

The Association For Electronic Music (AFEM) wants to help make the electronic music industry a healthier place for people with neuro-diverse conditions. Back in 2019, AFEM also shared a guide that more broadly dealt with mental health in the electronic music industry.

The results of the survey, which defines neurodiversity as including “ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder), ADHD, dyslexia, dyscalculia, dyspraxia and Tourette Syndrome”, will help companies and organizations, as well as their employees, to learn what it’s like to be part of the electronic music industry with a neuro-diverse condition and how to better support people that have them. The survey is the first of its kind to specifically hone in on neurodiversity.

“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 Health Group founder Tristan Hunt said in a statement. “By taking part in this survey, you will help create an industry that better understands and supports people with neuro-diverse conditions, so making it a happier and healthier place for everyone who works in it.” You can participate in the survey here. All responses are anonymous, and AFEM will aim to share the results later in the year.
