Neurodiversity affects about 15-20% of the population and neurodiverse users can struggle with software usability. However, there are few initiatives geared at educating about accessibility for neurodiversity. We begin conversation about this topic by synthesizing accessibility guidelines for some of the neurodiverse population – people on the autism spectrum, people with dyslexia and people with ADHD – and giving guidelines about teaching about accessibility for neurodiverse users.
