Making digital learning accessible for learners with Intellectual Disability
“This is the first time most of the learners here are interacting with a digital device. It may be difficult to determine their exact level of engagement today, but we are hopeful as teachers. I have seen bright learners with intellectual disabilities. They need more time and more support to learn.” These are the words of Jane Njoroge, the Senior Teacher at Mugumoini Primary School in Thika, a town north of Kenya’s capital of Nairobi. She is trained in teaching children with disabilities, specifically those with autism.
