Our research explores new forms of technologyenhanced interventions for children with Intellectual Disability (ID). The paper presents an innovative smart space called Magic K-Room, which has been designed in cooperation with ID specialists and provides multisensory stimuli exploiting full-body interaction with various kinds of smart objects and ambient features. Using brain signals acquired through a wearable EEG headset, the space is responsive to a particular child's levels of relaxation and attention, automatically adapting the stimuli to the child's state, and allows therapists to automatically collect a child's data for diagnosis purposes or to fine tune their therapy.

Abstract

Our research explores new forms of technologyenhanced interventions for children with Intellectual Disability (ID). The paper presents an innovative smart space called Magic K-Room, which has been designed in cooperation with ID specialists and provides multisensory stimuli exploiting full-body interaction with various kinds of smart objects and ambient features. Using brain signals acquired through a wearable EEG headset, the space is responsive to a particular child's levels of relaxation and attention, automatically adapting the stimuli to the child's state, and allows therapists to automatically collect a child's data for diagnosis purposes or to fine tune their therapy.
