Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
All people need to communicate - but not all people have the same preconditions. Some are limited in their ability to speak, read and write, for example, people with severe learning difficulties.To help support this communities it is apparent that new tools need to be created to help enhance communication by providing alternative means.
Communicative technologies can potentially increase independence amongst a group of people who rely on caregivers and assistance on a daily basis and provide opportunities of enhancing community and safety through social connectedness.
The technology for multitouch tables and devices has existed for a few years and is continually improving. This opens new doors for interaction and can be a potential asset for people with Cognitive Disabilities.
