App aims to empower people with intellectual disabilities

An innovative education programme that addresses the challenge of digital inclusion and digital literacy among people with intellectual disabilities will be showcased later today.

The Digi-ID programme is a pan-European project which involves researchers from Trinity Centre for Ageing and Intellectual Disability (TCAID), working with partners from France, Sweden, and The Netherlands who are experts in education, health, and technology.

A digital skills education app aims to empower people with intellectual disabilities with the knowledge, skills and confidence to manage their health and social inclusion needs digitally.
