Have you ever wondered what lies beyond the fields of accessibility standards? This is the land of inclusion—and it tends to overlook an almost invisible audience: neurominorities. At least 10%-20% of the world's population is neurodiverse, so you might wonder how they could be forgotten about while designing digital products. The answer is: it’s complicated.

“Complicated” refers to the daily lives of neurodivergent people, rather than how complex it should be to design experiences that include them. Other creative disciplines like architecture and interior design have been onto solutions for neurodiverse “guests” much longer.

For people with Tourette’s, dyslexia, ADHD, Autism or other neurodivergencies, navigating their life is simply more demanding than it is for neurotypical people. The world looks and feels differently: as if someone had changed the operating system but has not handed you the corresponding device to use it.

After Katrin Suetterlin was officially diagnosed with ADHD, dyscalculia and dyspraxia later in life, her mission in work and life is to remind peers and leaders not to dismiss such a large part of their audiences.

Join her to learn more about how your professional practices of usability testing, user research and UX writing or content design can level up to perform even better.

In this one-hour Master Class, you’ll learn:

  • How to design for neurodivergent audiences, starting with inclusive information architecture and content modeling, growing your design systems and honing your skills in UX designs for neurodiversity.
  • How neuroinclusion can become part of your design thinking process, your workflows and your digital products.
  • How to achieve the next step of simpler, more accessible designs for more impact and adoption.
  • How intersectionality severely influences neurodivergent experiences.
  • How Katrin’s own personal and professional experiences as a neurodivergent designer shape her entire UX practice.

This Master Class will demonstrate some of the many challenges neurominorities face and how those hidden obstacles may impact your own products’ usability. You’ll walk away with hands-on examples and recommendations to better your accessible designs, becoming more and more inclusive.

Even if you can't attend live, register to gain access to a recording that you can watch at any time after the broadcast.
