Susanna Fantoni and Kirstie Whitaker talk about how the Citizen Science, Turing Institute project will make public spaces more comfortable for autistic people.

Too many neurodivergent people are overwhelmed by public spaces.

Navigating the world can cause huge sensory and social demands.

By 2030 we aim to adapt existing public spaces to be more inclusive for neurodivergent people and design new developments with neurodiversity in mind. 

The big dream is that everyone will one day be accepted. We are still a long way from there but with projects like this it feels like research is definitely moving in the right direction.
