Education for Romania:
Free educational resources for teachers working with special needs children
The resources available online for educators working with at-risk children or for integrating children with special educational needs are often not relevant, are not translated in Romanian or are not adapted to the Romanian context. AcCES is a digital centralizer of free educational resources for teachers working with children with SEN, integrated with a helpline staffed by psychologists, that teachers can get in touch with to discuss special cases and get advice and help. The platform will open all resources to all teachers, and in order to get in touch with a therapist, they will have to create an account and submit a request for help, before being contacted by a specialist.

All code written by the Code for Romania community is open-source. We aim to build, contribute to and encourage the development of Romania's code library to increase the quality of software solutions in the public space and beyond. Open source development increases the quality of the digital infrastructure built by digital actors, reduces costs by reusing code in different contexts, increases transparency, eliminates reliance on single providers and encourages the strengthening of contributor communities among specialists who can report errors or improve components and functionality.
