Neurodiversity is the word used to describe the infinite diversity of the human brain and mind. With one in eight people estimated to be neurodivergent (i.e. having a neurology that is not typical) the importance of considering neurodiversity within the built environment is abundantly clear, enabling spaces to be inclusive for all users. This whitepaper looks at the needs of these individuals and what this means for the design of the built environment. It also examines the need for evidence based guidelines for designing for the mind and provides guidance on the factors to consider with a particular focus on how the correct flooring specification can help. Finally, it illustrates the approaches to meeting the requirements of neurodivergent people with case study examples.
