Supporting Children with Disabilities with Smart Digital Aids to Become Self-reliant Members of the Society

This project was focused on the reported rates of childhood intellectual disabilities in Pakistan. Often such children are marginalised by the societies, and are not accepted by main stream schools. In order to address such issues, a holistic approach was taken under consideration, (1) using online (social media and design of a web portal) and offline (community workshops with localised material) platforms to address (social) stigma and raise awareness, and (2) developing open source digital aids to assist parents, teachers and caretakers in the diagnosis and rehabilitation process.
