I will share the story about the collaboration of designers, architects, and urban planners with adults with autism. The goal of the collaboration is to make the design process inclusive for the neurodiverse population. The design process through the lenses of the neurodiverse population can help us manage the disruptive aspect of urban planning or urban design. One of the reasons that some plans are not executed or good prescription recommendations don't get taken on is because of fear of the unknown change.
The participants will be engaged through the series of discussions that would ask participants to reflect on the Feelings Framework, developed in collaboration with adults with autism. https://www.planning.org/planning/2018/oct/sensoryoverload/
