VERSE: Piesano’s Restaurant Experience

This project is located around the premise that virtual environments can be a safe space to rehearse and practice skills; especially for people who might find exploring the real-world activities anxiety-inducing and worrying.  After all, not all places are attuned to people with neurodiversity.  With this in mind, we have collaborated with our local autistic community to co-design apps that might help enable, and support, access to a range of environments. By working with local communities, we also aim to educate and help to make the ‘real-world’ more inclusive and understanding.
