Accessible templates for autistic people

Go to solution Solved by creedon,

Recommended Posts

Squarespace templates are beautiful, but I haven't had any luck finding any that are designed with Autistic people in mind. In particular, styles are static and somewhat minimal to avoid over-stimulation and distraction. Can anyone point me to templates that are more on the minimal side? Or, is it possible to disable the transitioning behavior of designs? Just wondering what options are available :)

You can turn off some of the Animations.


I don't think this will disable all animation like effects. Lazy loaded items might be an issue. They tend to have a fade-in effect. You may be able to control the fade-in with some CSS. From a bang it appears to an even gentler fade-in than SS provides.

As to a theme that has muted colors I can't suggest a template. You can of course create your own colors.  It seems there are several website which cover color schemes for autistic people. I searched for website color pallets for autism and got several hits.

Let us know how it goes.
