Designing for Children with Learning Differences

The Health Design Lab collaborated with Kenneth Gordon Maplewood School on an exciting project to develop art and design teaching materials that facilitate creative learning by students with learning differences. ECUAD Research Assistant Caylee Raber has been working onsite at KGMS, observing, co-teaching with staff in as many different classes, age groups and teachers as possible. Data is being collected in pilot classes using an assessment instrument developed on site. The assessment aims to measure spatial reasoning ability and pre / post effects of  intervention.

A secondary outcome of the project was the design of an app for  students with dyslexia in collaboration with RA Brenna Randlett. The resulting iPad app leverages cooperative learning and interactive play as tools to practice essential reading techniques.
