About the Session

There are a variety of games customized for different disability types. All of the activities require the participants to use the sense organs which a person with the respective disability uses along with the use of assistive technologies or devices.

Agenda of the Session

  2. Awareness Games for Hearing Impairment: Setting up a sign language booth and solving a crossword in Indian Sign Language are some of the examples of the activities included here.
