Flexibile exercices for children with deafblindness
Solution is live
Access to quality education for children with deafblindness first depends on the access of those who train them to sufficient and flexible educational resources. Children in this situation have special needs related for communication, socialization, cognitive and psychomotor development. eSense is a solution adapted to their specific needs, considering their visual and hearing impairments. The application supports teachers in early intervention and beyond, with customizable exercises and games that follow the current curriculum, being open to everyone, open-source, replicable and reusable worldwide.
