1300, Inclusive Environments

Every human being has unique capacities to see, hear, touch, taste, smell, and explore the world. Inclusive design acknowledges sensory differences by offering people multiple ways to communicate and navigate. Sensory differences are an essential aspect of the human condition. By embracing these differences, designers are contributing to inclusive design languages.
