Nigel Newbutt

UWE, Bristol
Researcher in the Department of Education
Dr. Newbutt is a researcher in the Department of Education at UWE, Bristol. His work has involved the design, development and application of digital technologies for, and with, autistic groups. His recent research has involved the evaluation of virtual reality head-mounted displays in educational settings for young people with autism. This has involved the inclusion of autistic children and their teachers in both the research and evaluation of tools. Coupled with usability evaluations and developing ethical and safety protocols, his work has helped to provide unique insights to the views of autistic people and their use of HMD-based VR.  Nigel is Vice Chair of COST Action a-STEP (advancing Social inclusion through Technology and Empowerment) that seeks to better understand, and meet the challenge of AT uptake in autistic and ID groups.
