Participatory Design (PD) with Disabled Communities
Prototypes have been developed through participatory design (PD) approaches. Individuals with disabilities can play an active role in the design process. This can lead to greater levels of user buy-in by disabled users. Studies have been undertaken with individuals who are blind, individuals with learning differences and individuals with SIIDs. The needs of blind situationally-impaired users have also been investigated.
