More on Designing Websites for Those Who Think Differently
Earlier this year, I wrote a post about how important it is to keep neurodiversity* in mind when designing websites.
[*Neurodiversity: a term referring to variation in the human brain regarding sociability, learning, attention, mood, and other mental functions in a non-pathological sense. The concept of neurodiversity was first taken up by individuals on the autism spectrum but has since been applied to other neurodevelopmental conditions, such as ADHD and dyslexia, and mental health conditions, like schizophrenia and obsessive-compulsive disorder.]
And if you thought that was really cool, you’re in luck! Michelle Tylicki, the London-based graphic designer and user-interface professional who provided the guides that I shared in the last post also created guides outlining the best website practices for those with low vision, users with physical or motor disabilities, users who are deaf or hard of hearing, and those who are using screen readers. Check them out below!
Remember, we don’t all think, learn, or see in the same way. But these guides offer an easy blueprint for how to navigate website best practices for various neurodiverse groups!
