About this session

Everything about neurodiversity and UX you have always wanted to know but were too afraid to ask.

Overwhelm, anxiety and exhaustion are more prevalent than ever, having gone through global incidents such as the war on Ukraine or the Covid-19 pandemic. To minimize these paralyzing feelings means to make your UX more inclusive, accessible and user-friendly.

Whenever Katrin speaks at a conference, shares her opinions on a podcast or appears in a workshop or webinar, she attempts to show you her world as a neurodivergent designer.

But what she also cares about is sharing how a different approach to working in UX will lead to an advanced level of inclusion and accessibility: neuroinclusion is the key to unlock a smoother experience of digital interfaces for so many people around the world.

This hands-on session will not only reveal how to practice neuroinclusive UX. Katrin will show you several tricks and workarounds from her years of experience as a UX professional and her life-long track record of being a neurodivergent person.

A session giving you an overview of neurodivergencies, a short guide for an improved UX practice and some hands-on exercises to tackle.

Requirements

Curiosity about how neurodivergent brains can teach you another way of looking at UX in general.

Experience Level

For everyone who is keen on designing for... everyone.
