TangiPlan miLAB 2015
A tangible prototype that assists children with planning, organization and time-management.
Children with Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) experience a deficit in cognitive processes responsible for goal-directed behaviors, known as executive functioning. In an effort to assist them, we developed TangiPlan – a prototype of a tangible assistive technology intended to improve executive functioning during morning routines. TangiPlan is comprised of six tangible objects, representing tasks that need to be completed during a child’s morning routine, and a tablet application.
