About this Project:

Our project addresses the issue of people with disabilities not having the resources or support they need. They can range from physical disabilities to intellectual disabilities. Our project provides aid and information for any of the two.

We thought about things that people of all ages go through and agreed on disabilities to include in our project. Additionally, through observation at our school, we noticed children whose issues weren’t being resolved, taken seriously, or considered. We decided to write about this to come to a solution for people everywhere through our app. It would be an open and safe place to chat with people and learn about different disabilities and how to help.

Our project brings awareness and tries to find a solution to the inclusion of people with disabilities. Our project would put emphasis on this and bring attention to the issues in society against disabled people, implied or not.

Feedback from the Judges:

👏 Principal at Minds On Design Lab — Emoti-Con Judge
Congrats on all your efforts to create this "Accesible" app design. I think you have a great idea. I really appreciate how you observed a need in your peers at school and found inspiration in that to design a solution to address this need.

I would have welcomed learning more about your ideas and the process you went through. For your video and slides in Canva, it would be have great to have you narrate or include some notes about what I was seeing. Keep this in mind if you work on this project further or for your next one.

The prototype showcases some thoughtful ideas. It also does a nice job of considering conventions of mobile apps. The style and position of your navigation, location symbols, battery, signal, and time all show a good attention to detail.

Thank you for submitting this project and sharing it with us. And again, congrats to you all for your efforts.
