Travelling with a Hidden Disability
"Travelling with a Hidden Disability" is a campaign to make bus, train, coach and plane travel (or any form of public transport) more accessible for people with Hidden Disabilities such as Autism & Asperger's. If you are a council, public transport company or are developing designs for a new station, building or environment then please get in touch:
Increase awareness and understanding for “Hidden Disabilities”
Make any form of transport more accessible for people with “Hidden Disabilities”
Make transport environments, such as airports and train stations, more accessible for people with “Hidden Disabilities”
My objectives are driven by the “The Alien Principle”. If an alien was trying to travel it would be so clear that they would be able to do it.
I am looking for a sponsor/s to help me with:
• Promotion, Advertising, Marketing, Selling & Administration
I recently visited Aston University where I was helping Aston Business School to conduct a feasibility study into how rail travel can be made more accessible to people with less visible impairments (LVIs) through the use of 360 cameras and games development tools.
I am also advising Mott MacDonald on how to make my local Solihull train station more Autism friendly as they design the plans for regeneration.
Can I Help?
When I presented one of My Asperger's talks to Mott MacDonald I not only spoke to their staff about "My Life Living with Asperger's" but I also spoke to them about "Asperger's & Public Transport". I talked to them about my experiences using trains & busses, the travel training I received from my local council and how train stations can be made more accessible for people with Autism.
If you would like me to come and present a talk for you then please get in touch.
