WG 2 of LUDI has developed a LUDI database of assistive technology to support play for children with disabilities.

With these database LUDI aims to collect data about

–        play experiences with different devices, in different contexts of play, with (adapted) toys or low and high technological products and during different kind of services (e.g., therapeutic, educational, research).

–        usability and accessibility of devices used for the play.

We like to invite you to add data at http://ludi.utad.pt and to view data submitted by others
