Michael Tyre Presents at SCUP North Atlantic Regional Conference

Michael Tyre, AIA, and Allison Page, Campus Planner at Smith College, will be presenting their session, “How to Design Neuro-inclusive Learning Environments” on Monday, March 25 at the Society for College and University Planning (SCUP) North Atlantic Regional Conference in Boston.

An estimated fifteen-to-twenty percent of the world’s population exhibits some form of neurodivergence. Awareness of the sensory and environmental issues that affect neurodivergent students can allow planners to support the unique needs of this learning community. In this session, we’ll discuss how Smith College leveraged SCUP-funded research to make a case for using neuro-inclusive design strategies to create accessible learning environments. Come learn about the prevalence and challenges that neurodiverse learners face, how to identify and mitigate common sensory distractions, and how to engage students and faculty in programming neuro-inclusive academic spaces.
