TRACKS autism

TRACKS autism

A new website for a very special place.

TRACKS autism is an independent local charity and early years centre, based in Stevenage UK, for children with autism and related conditions. They provide a calm environment for between eight to ten children per session, five times a week, 48 weeks of the year.

Their brief for the new website was:

  • It must be fully content managed so that they can update as much of it as possible.
  • It must communicate to existing and prospective parents and carers, professionals and act as a fundraising tool.
  • The design must use muted colours and be "calming".
  • Be simple to navigate
  • Not provide too much information at once - a single subject per webpage.
  • The site must be easily accessible across all devices but mustn't change too much. A visitor accessing it on a mobile should not have to re-learn how to use the site if they subsequently visited it on a desktop or tablet.

Take a look at our video which shows what the site does.

Our design keeps the site simple with each webpage being dedicated to a single subject with "panels" at the bottom of each page to provide visual related links to other content.

We devised a "keypad" menu which can be used just as easily on a smartphone as it can on a tablet or desktop. Most importantly, the menu doesn't change between devices. Visitors are presented with the exact same menu whether they are on a 'phone or on their desktop PC. This ensures that visitors get the same experience when switching devices and do not have to re-learn how to use the site.

We used the ExpressionEngine CMS and there isn't much that TRACKS can't update themselves.

The site was officially launched at a reception at the Mansion House in London by Jane Asher in the presence of the Lord Mayor of London, Baroness Howarth OBE, Lady Hobson OBE and the Revd Canon Roger Royle amongst others.
