Designing a weather-based neuroatypical planning tool explores suitable ways in which technology can support people with Asperger’s Syndrome to plan their work in their terms, subscribing to their methods. The profiling process builds upon the analysis of autobiographical writings categorizing the hyper-systemization types of the user, and considering the hyper-sensibilities that affect their planning process. The outcome of this research project is a weather-based planning tool that visualizes the tasks in the context of weather conditions which allows the user to leverage their visual thinking abilities to perform their daily planning process.
