Innovation and Ideas

What is the Innovation and Ideas Award for?

This category is for engineers, researchers, creators, and deep thinkers. We have combined the Assistive Tech and Research categories under one umbrella for 2024 and widened the definition to incorporate all kinds of innovation, something that the neurodivergent community is excellent at!

Whether it is a neurodivergent individual or a creation or discovery that will be of benefit to neurodivergent people, we want to hear about it.

If you know of any new innovations that deserves some recognition, nominations for 2024 are now open!

Deadline for nominations is Friday 7th June 2024 at 11:59pm.

Cubbie is an immersive sensory experience which provides a tailored experience for the Autistic and SEN community, ensuring that their needs are recognised and addressed quickly. The Process starts with a collection of inputs and the creation of bespoke programs (experiences)

through the Expert Cubbie Occupational Team. These are uploaded to the Cubbie Cloud and all Cubbies are networked. Users can access their unique program via a touch pad on the Hub. The Cubbie environment of light, sound, and video then automatically adjusts to each User.

The team from Cubbie collect their CND Award on stage with Nassar of Microlink, Nicky and Kirsty Campbell
