Kate Van Niekerk: Designing for and with ADHD: struggles, superpowers, and the senses

For the most part the world we live in literally has not been designed for people (especially women) with ADHD or other neurodivergent conditions. It can be a struggle to conform with the standards and expectations of the workplace (sometimes worse in a remote context), but ADHD symptoms can also be a hidden creative superpower—it’s no wonder such a high proportion of designers have it. This talk will look at the ADHD advantage in UX & design, a few coping tips, and a few amazing things being done by designers using multi-sensory design to improve the physical and digital experiences of those whose brains process things a bit differently.
