Money Handling Training - Applications for Persons with Down Syndrome.
In: The 12th International Conference on Intelligent Environments, London, UK, Sep 14, 2016 - Sep 16, 2016, DOI: 10.1109/IE.2016.48, [Conference or Workshop Item]

Abstract

Paying for goods and services is a fundamental activity of daily living. Persons with Down Syndrome face these situations as a challenge. Through the usage of assistive technologies, the project Poseidon aims to enable persons with Down Syndrome to be more independent. In this paper we describe a training application for handling money. The novelty is the concept of extending the screen of an application to a palpable table, which serves as novel interaction device. Furthermore, we design the user interface highly personalizable in order to cover a large range of learning profiles of persons with Down Syndrome.
