COMING SOON: Special Journal Issue on Participatory Design with autistic users

Debra Satterfield and Marc Fabri have been busy guest-editing a special issue of the International Journal of Human-Computer Interaction. The theme of the issue is “Designing with and for users on the autism spectrum”.
 
We’ve had a good number of submissions and an international panel of reviewers. The review process is now completed and I’m very pleased to announce that the issue will include 6 papers, originating from the US, Spain, Austria and the UK. The papers cover some excellent examples of participatory design, as well as important reflections on how autistic people can be involved in the conception, design and creation of technology that is made for them – with them.
 
I cannot reveal the papers and authors just yet – the issue will be published in 2019. So please bear with us for a little while longer.
