Description
Children learn through interacting with their environment. Most children develop their cognitive and linguistic abilities though play interactions. The Lego Mindstorms Robotic Invention SystemT is a tool that children with physical disabilities can use to facilitate play interactions. Over a four week period, a single participant learned how to use two Lego Mindstorms robots in play activities. The participant was able to achieve planned control over the robots by using head-mounted switches and a switch-adapted remote control. He demonstrated quick learning with various types of interactive play activities. The Lego Mindstorms Robotic Invention System was found to be a valuable tool for observing how children with physical disabilities can learn through play interactions.
