Earlier this year, Leila delivered two presentation at the European Network of Science Centres and Museums conference in Toulouse, France.
The first presentation focused on staff training and devlopment, and was delivered with Marwa Al-Madani of Mishkat. The feedback from the audience was great: 85% of evaluation respondents were satisfied or completely satisfied with the quality of the speakers, with one respondent commenting ‘that was more relevant than I hoped!’.
The second presentation was on the subject of making experiences more accessible for visitors with autism and their families. Leila spoke from both her personal and professional experience of working with people with autism, and shared some top tips. Comments from the feedback included ‘Leila was great, because she made it personal’, and 100% of respondents were satisfied or completely satisfied with the quality of the speakers. Following this presentation, Leila has been advising the San Jose Children’s Museum in America on their programming for visitors with autism, and will be working with Nathalie Puzenat of Cite de Science to develop a network of practitioners in the museum and science centre field who champion accessibility.
