The aim at Let’s Go Skills is to encourage people with cognitive impairments ,learning difficulties and special educational needs (SEN) to fully engage with all types of modern devices and applications to train them for the workplace. We design for inclusivity with exposure to as many different types of applications that are co-designed.
Collaborative solutions will reduce inequality for this user group. There are several million EU adults citizens with a special educational need/disability. In Ireland alone, we have 14,786 students in inclusive education schools with SEN.

It is envisaged that some of the proposed project findings could be applied to areas like dementia and other neuro-developmental disorders.Read More
