Design of Next Generation Autism Technology by Adults to Collaborate and Co-Create Experiences

Research Study

Researchers at the University of Washington are conducting a co-design study called the Next Generation Autism Technology study: https://vsrs.ischool.uw.edu/projects/autism/.  The purpose of this study is to understand the ways that autistic adults collaborate with other people, and how people co-create sensory and emotional experiences. We are following a co-design process about potential future technology that would be designed to be useful to autistic adults as they collaborate with other people.

We are recruiting up to 10 autistic individuals (aged 18 – 32 years old) for an in-home design activity that explores the ways conversations are, in some ways, like playing a game. All the activities are about creating elements of a game to use during conversations. (You do not need to be a game designer or create a full working game.) We will provide all the design materials and instructions. The game design activities are meant to be fun, creative, and a way to express ideas!  

Each participant will receive a $75 Amazon gift card for participating.

Please see this recruiting flyer for more information. If you are interested or want more information, email the lead researcher, Annuska Zolyomi, at the email address, vsrs@uw.edu. She will ask you a few screening questions to make sure the research is a good fit.
