Abstract:People with either multiple or rare disabilities miss a feeling of cognitive empowerment because they are not able to participate in certain activities. A design methodology, which enables designers and non-designers to produce tools for these users, could prove to be the solution. A case study of one person with cerebral palsy is used to test several methods, such as co-design, when developing these tools. The results of these methods were combined into one design methodology, the Pevadi methodology, that promotes user-inclusion and empowerment. The Pevadi methodology provides structure to the designer in form of a flow-chart. It uses accompanying method cards which give remarks on what to take into consideration when designing to maximise a feeling of empowerment. However, only one case study was used with limited methods so further research needs to be done when using this design methodology for other users
