Editorial John Woolham and Sarah Parsons Welcome to edition 2 of volume 11 of the Journal of Enabling Technologies. We hope that the four articles in this edition will be of interest to our readers. They cover a diverse range of issues: the first two relate to neurodiversity and autism. The first of these is a paper offering an account of the ways in which two autistic teenagers collaborated in developing an interactive game and the second a shorter commentary structured around the proceedings of a seminar series. The third paper in this issue offers an interesting exploration of factors that shape professionals’ choice of graphic symbol sets commonly used to augment, or act as a primary form of communication for people with learning disabilities, and the fourth is another interesting paper documenting the design and evaluation of a self-transfer device for wheelchair users. Editorials usually try to whet the reader’s appetite for the contents of the edition by describing in a little more detail its contents. This one is no exception. We recognise that most of our readers will have specific research or professional interests and that not all of our papers will interest all our readers.

Abstract

John Woolham and Sarah Parsons Welcome to edition 2 of volume 11 of the Journal of Enabling Technologies. We hope that the four articles in this edition will be of interest to our readers. They cover a diverse range of issues: the first two relate to neurodiversity and autism. The first of these is a paper offering an account of the ways in which two autistic teenagers collaborated in developing an interactive game and the second a shorter commentary structured around the proceedings of a seminar series. The third paper in this issue offers an interesting exploration of factors that shape professionals’ choice of graphic symbol sets commonly used to augment, or act as a primary form of communication for people with learning disabilities, and the fourth is another interesting paper documenting the design and evaluation of a self-transfer device for wheelchair users. Editorials usually try to whet the reader’s appetite for the contents of the edition by describing in a little more detail its contents. This one is no exception.
