Neurodiversity, first used in the context of autism spectrum disorder, describes the different ways that people experience and interact with the world around them, while not viewing these differences as deficits. In this TigerSphere we aim to bring together the Clemson faculty researching and working on technology, design, development, and evaluation with neurodiverse populations, such as those living with intellectual and developmental disabilities, learning disabilities, and neurological conditions, such as Alzheimer’s Disease and related dementias.
Our goal is to provide a space for participants to:
1. Connect researchers at Clemson working in this space
2. Discuss strategic research focus areas in this space
3. Form cross-disciplinary collaborations for future projects, initiatives and grant proposals
4. Develop a plan to better support neurodiverse students at Clemson
