Sensory Interior Design: A Necessary Luxury When There Are Exceptional Needs

“I should be doing yoga every day, but that’s not possible,” said Zeke, at the start of the pandemic. “There’s not enough space in my apartment. I could move the furniture aside and put it back, but realistically I’m never going to do that.”
“Send me photos of your place, and measurements of everything,” I told him.  A week later he had a dedicated yoga zone in his home office, along with a library, a reading corner, and a much more comfortable desk setup.
Cost of new furniture, fixtures and supplies: nothing.
Like many of my clients, Zeke is wrangling a cluster of diagnoses which make executive functioning
difficult. He is often in physical pain and hasn’t got money to spare. He’s not the kind of person who
hires interior designers—ever.
Because design is a luxury, right?

Radio Interview with Colleen Biggs, Lead Up for Women

Interview by Bradford Bucknum, Philadelphia Sustainable Business Network

Why would it be a loss for our society to not consider how to be more inclusive in the workplace to people who are neurodiverse?

Neurodiverse people have superpowers! They will literally save the planet!

Hyper-focus, systems design, programming, scientific analysis, creative insight—there’s a lot of overlap between the kinds of skills that built the tech economy, and the superpowers of the neurodiverse. There’s a reason that Silicon Valley and other tech-heavy areas have a higher rate of autism diagnoses among their children.

Our species is evolving to become more neurodiverse, as a response to the ways we have changed the environment. It’s my bet that neurodiverse people will be key players in solving the problems that threaten our existence, such as climate change, because unlike most neurotypicals, they can’t easily ignore uncomfortable circumstances. Most of us learn to compartmentalize the idea that, say, much of our coastline will be underwater in 50 years, or that the Trump administration is killing small children and wrecking our democratic institutions. Neurodiverse people, not so much. They don’t have those cognitive filters. They see a problem, and will not rest until they solve it.

Eccentric Genius Habitat Intervention

Are you an eccentric genius?

You’re in the right place, darling.

In this free e-course, you will discover:

The ONE design mistake that NEARLY ALL HUMANS make in their habitats, and how to fix it in 15 minutes. (You will roll your eyes. And cry.)

Three senses your kindergarten teacher didn’t mention. (And how they make you a NINJA.)

The design trend which created an epidemic of shut-ins. (NOT COVID-19. Some of us now know the meaning of schadenfreude.)

Why Febreze is EVIL. (There should be a warning label.)

What kinds of light fixtures will be BANNED when the establishment comes to its senses.

What color has to do with hormones. (And how to leverage it–St. John’s Wort, piffle!)

What NEVER to do, ever ever, if you do not wish to induce psychosis, extreme depression, vertigo, or actual regurgitation in guests and members of your own family. (We all love those Bad Examples.)
