Sharing innovation to inspire action

A budgeting tool for people with autism

post-image
People living with Neurodevelopmental disorders (NDD) such as autism have trouble understanding numbers and abstract concepts such as value. As a result, they have been left without any financial products they can understand hence can't aim to become independent. Olive allows for this by enabling carers to place rules ( limits, permissions) over certain categories of money (groceries, rent, etc). In this way, Olive can adapt to the decision making abilities of the user. Olive has been working with some major banks who are interested in transforming their products, and soon, she?ll be releasing a toolkit to help support banks in this process. http://awards.ixda.org/entry/2019/olive-finance-made-accessible/
