If you are came to my talk at Upfront on 22 March, thank you! Here are the sources I used in my talk, some further reading, and a collection of resources I hope you will find useful.
Video and feedback will be posted on Monday.
Sources of information and quotes
6 takeaways from #DiverseMinds (I quoted from some of the people in this article)
Meet the invisible minority: Why my autism and neurodiversity are gifts to the industry (by Wayne Deakin, whom I quoted)
UX and website design articles
These didn’t come up in my talk but I did use them in my research, and I think a lot of you will find them useful
Accessibility cheatsheet – some of this is old but it’s a very useful reminder
Some lovely sites
https://usabilitygeek.com – Roxanne Abercrombie, who inspired some of the talk, writes for this site
https://accssible.com – Bradley Taught’s site
http://adickens.co.uk/ – Amy Dickens’ website
Invisible Women: Exposing Data Bias in a World Designed for Men by Caroline Criado Perez – this is where I got the women’s toilet fact from. Get the book from your local independent bookshop!
