Academic Workshop themed “Designing with and for autistic users”

(read the full details here)

The workshop focused on making software designed for users on the autism spectrum a) useful and relevant, b) easy to use, and c) something people actually want to use. This included the evaluation of participatory design methods, where users are deeply embedded in research, design and development – and not just during the final evaluation stage.
