Congratulations Rodrigo, M.Sc.!

We got pretty patriotic and on the “Flag day in Mexico” (2-24-14), Rodrigo Zalapa successfully defended his master dissertation entitled: “Tangible computing to support the sensory stimulation therapies of children with autism”. In his dissertation he explored how to integrate movement-based and tangible interactions to enable children to use balls to paint on top of...

Congratulations to Rodrigo Zalapa!

Movement-based interactions supporting sensory impairments

 private webpage:  Children with autism have sensory processing disorders impairing their ability of having awareness of their body and movements  so they frequently exhibit “atypical” body-interactions they use as “compensatory movements” helping them to have some sense of agency when interacting with the world.  In this project, we explore how tangible computing could offer to children...
