The DART Development/Autism/Research/Technology lab at University of Edinburgh aims to apply methods from psychology to questions with educational, clinical and societal impact. The general objective is to understand neurotypical and neurodivergent forms of development and life experiences, with a specific focus on autism and on the consequences of being born early. We endorse a neurodiversity model in all of our projects, in which we recognise the disabling effects of a normative environment which is tailored to the needs of a (broadly) neurotypical majority. A large part of our work aims to discover how we can more clearly describe neurodiversity (in psychological terms) and use that knowledge to inform the development of new practices in schools and clinics, and new understanding in our society at large. We hope this will support neurodivergent people, and our whole community, to live and thrive together.
