To appear in Interaction Design and Children, June 2008.
In order to design for children with special needs, we
need to design with children with special needs. The
inclusionary model proposed in this paper suggests that
appropriate involvement of children with special needs
in the design process begins with the level of
involvement a team expects from children, and is
additionally influenced by the nature and severity of the
child’s disability and the availability and intensity of
support available to the child.
