Lessons I'm learning from Emily and others with Down's syndrome
Dear Sheron,My name is Daiane Goulart. I Study BA (hons) Design in Products and Interaction at Ravensbourne College of Design and Comunication. I am writing to you to speak about Emily. I am designing an Interactive Radio (sort of 'Radio Drum' with interactive music and games) as my final project for this term at University. My User group is Special Children. A lot of research has been already done about Down Syndrome. The product is been developed and a few changes need to be added, such as colours, set of bottons and handle.I am mostly interested about her motore coordination, in how Rosie reacts to music and colours.Therefore, I am looking for ways to expand my vision about how I could make this product better. I would like to kindly ask if we could have a chat via e-mail or Skype. The outcome of this short experience could be beneficial for both of us. I will also have to provide feedback to my University group about my progress, a process which would expand our knowledge; becoming better students, better interns and ultimately better designers.E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.orgMy University website: www.rave.ac.uk Thank you for your time, I look forward to your reply.Kind Regards,Daiane
My apologises for the wrong name I typed, Rose, instead of Emily. Rosie is one special girl who is part of the project as well.
