In User-Centred Design (UCD) the needs and preferences of the end user are given primary consideration. In some cases, current methodologies such as interviewing may be difficult to conduct, for example when working with children, particularly those with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). This paper outlines an approach to understanding the end-users, context and subject matter through the use of peer interviewing. This is proposed as a viable adaptation to User-Centred methodologies for inclusion of children and those with ASD.
