Neurodiversity and archaeological practice

Estimated to affect 15 per cent of the population, neurodivergent individuals process and interpret information in different ways with attention deficit disorders, autism, dyslexia and dyspraxia identified as specific examples.

This webpage forms part of our developing online resources providing information, lived experiences and good practice case studies to help individuals and workplaces to better support archaeologists. If you are aware of other links we might use or have good practice case studies you would be happy to share, please get in touch at

Informal neurodiversity network - this is an informal network hosted by CIfA for archaeologists who want to understand more about or share experiences of neurodiversity in archaeology. Our aim is to raise awareness of neurodiversity in archaeology and explore ways the sector can better support colleagues. If you'd like to join our informal neurodiversity network please email
