There is a wide range of digital technologies aiming to support autistic people – but is there evidence that any of them work?
This free seminar will address this question for you. The Building Evidence for Technology and Autism (BETA) project assesses the existing evidence for digital technologies that support autism. Guidelines and tools have been co-developed by the BETA project team with the autistic community.
In this workshop the BETA team will present these guidelines and take you through the online tool developed to identify the evidence for digital technologies for autistic users. You will get the chance to engage in discussion about this field of research, ask questions and assess the evidence base and user-centredness of your chosen digital technology.
