UX professionals have access to a range of design methods but how do they ensure such methods are inclusive? In this webinar, David Swallow, an Accessibility Engineer at The Paciello Group, will explore how to include people with disabilities in user-centered design. Drawing on academic research as well as real-world experiences, David will examine different approaches for ensuring people with disabilities are at the heart of your design process. This 60-minute webinar will cover the following topics:

  • Using and getting the most from user-centered design methods
  • Understanding the benefits and limitations of user-centered design methods
  • Exploring persona creation techniques and in what situations to use them
  • Representing people with disabilities in the design process
  • Creating your own inclusive personas
