Autism and ADHD

I created a range of resources to help neurodivergent students by providing examples of accommodations they can ask for when learning to play an instrument.

I am currently producing some YouTube videos to help my students and to provide them with something that can easily be shared to explain neurodivergent experiences to other people.

The videos are to promote understanding specifically of Autism, Dyslexia, ADHD, and Irlen Syndrome, and more broadly to encourage supportive and inclusive environments for learning, wellbeing, and working.
I draw from my own lived experience, research, teaching, and learning over the last 5 decades.

About my channel

I’ve made a short video which explains the types of content and topics I’m creating for my channel.

Irlen Syndrome

I’ve created a short video series on Irlen Syndrome. You can view the playlist on YouTube.

Simple changes can make a big difference

It often won’t take big changes to make it easier and more enjoyable for you to learn an instrument, for example:

Having the music printed on coloured paper

Having a bit more time to process the information by slowing the pace of the lesson
Speaking to your teacher so you can feel comfortable moving around during the lesson
I created a leaflet where I’ve shared things that have helped my neurodivergent students. Although each student is different the leaflet should hopefully give you an idea of some of the things that may help you.

I created a list of links to local organisations in the Norfolk area, online support and some wider resources I recommend about Autism and ADHD.
