Charity no. 1197107
Introduction and Purpose
Performing arts is a craft that attracts many neurodivergent children, young people and adults. One reason for this is thought to be because the individual can perform confidentially as an actor, singer and enjoy a more extrovert experience on stage or screen. Neurodivergent performers like neuro typical performers are talented across a broad repertoire, accessing the same training to hone their skill set.
Neurodivergence is a range of neurological conditions that vary the way in which someone learns, attends, communicates and interacts. For example, Autism, ADHD, Dyspraxia, Dyslexia. These can be diagnosed or can be how a person identifies. Both are equally valid.
The Triple ‘A’ Performer charity was born from the personal story of a young person who has a diagnosis of Autism, ADHD and Anxiety (triple A) and has trained and performed from the age of 5. Over the years this has created the highest of highs and the lowest of lows for a variety of reasons that always come back to his varied way of learning, attending, communicating and interacting.
The purpose of the charity is to raise awareness of neurodivergence in performing arts and drama and how children, young people and adults can be supported within the sector to access their passion, on a level playing field. To do this we offer at no cost:
- training in neurodivergency and strategies to support fair access and inclusion
- resources to enhance good practice
- annual events to showcase neurodivergent talent and enhance our message
- non-judgemental advice and learning opportunities in specific cases to reach mutually beneficial outcomes and enhance good practice.
