Guided by the experiential knowledge of neurodiverse youth, Sens.és Making will transform the ways in which we respond to and collaboratively create sensory safe environments for all.
Our project rests on the potentiality of citizen engagement.
Engagement with neurodiversity will revolutionize our methods in ways that we can be together. To our knowledge, this is the first project explicitly focused on transforming sensory environments, led by a youth advisory committee.
The focus of this project is on the processes and outcomes of engaging local institutions, businesses, and governments to ameliorate our sensory environments in healthcare, commercial settings, and public transportation.
In addition, we foreground the project’s sustainability and generativity by empowering our children and youth participants to create research-in-action initiatives to transform their everyday worlds.
Sens.és Making is supported by the CHILD-BRIGHT Network, under Canada’s Strategy for Patient-Oriented Research (SPOR) initiative.
