PLP Labs and Centric Lab launch Designing for Neurodiversity, a report for the BCO

Today, PLP Labs and Centric Lab launched a new research report for the British Council of Offices (BCO), Designing for Neurodiversity. The report examines the impacts that physical spaces have on their users, finding that certain spaces can be disabling because of their poor design and lack of consideration for the diverse needs of users. This is particularly true for neurodivergent individuals, whose conditions – while all experienced differently – are often negatively impacted by light and noise pollution and other sensorial sensitivities. This can cause individuals to experience high levels of stress due to heightened sensorial perceptions, inconsistent levels of comfort with learning and socialising, and difficulties regulating their moods.
