The Development and Evaluation of a Mobile Application to Facilitate Public Transport Use for Individuals on the Autism Spectrum: A Co-production Approach
Individuals on the autism spectrum have limited participation in community activities such as employment, education and social interaction. Lack of transportation is one key barrier that limits participation, with more than 80% of autistic people currently relying on family members for their travel needs. Public transport is an inexpensive and widely available form of transport, which autistic individuals themselves believe is critical in fulfilling their community participation goals. However, more autistic individuals have never used public transport, let alone consider the thought. To date, the challenges they face in using public transport have not been clearly defined, and this has resulted in lacking solutions that currently support people on the spectrum to freely navigate the community.
This webinar presents an autism-specific mobile application, co-produced with the end-users, that facilitates public transport use for individuals on the autism spectrum.
