SMART Technologies says that it is estimated that 15 to 20% of the world’s population are neurodivergent, including individuals who are on the autism spectrum, and people with ADHD, dyslexia, dyspraxia and dyscalculia.

SMART is sponsoring research, in collaboration with the University of Melbourne, to learn from the lived experiences of students who are autistic and who have ADHD. The study, currently underway, seeks to demonstrate that technology that champions UDL principles can help to eliminate barriers for neurodivergent students. The project engages neurodivergent learners to identify the tools that best support their academic and social needs, ensuring their voices are at the forefront of this initiative.
