The number of people who are born or develops intellectual disabilities has increased considerably lately, affecting about 3% of the world's population. This disability is manifested by impairment of cognitive, communication, motor and social skills, self-care and personal safety. There are also learning and understanding difficulties as a result of the insufficient development of intelligence. However, most of the needs of people with this disability do not differ from those of normal people, and they also need security, socialization, education, and very important professional integration.

Beneficial for All - Gamesp

Beneficial for All

    Teaching robotics as an essential piece of science and technology in schools will benefit every student, educator and parent involvement in the education process. Children won't just learn about the daily routine and social skills. Rather, they can use these concepts to unlock an interest and aptitude in less related fields such as music, art, sports, cooking, jobs and hobbies.
  With the online platform http://gamesp.org, everyone will play several sports and make some music activities - learning to play in the music workshop and be able to see the benefits of physical exercise.  The activities in this laboratory are aimed mainly at encouraging socialization and improving self-esteem.  

Wellcome to GamesP!

 A platform, a robot and board to live the greatest adventures with you. With five code buttons, it is all in your hands.

I am just code in your hands and you have the power to get anywhere.           Let’s code!

How Art Helps People With Disabilities

How Art Helps People With Disabilities 

The arts are more than a fun, superficial way to keep kids occupied. Art activities can help children with learning disabilities begin to overcome the challenges they face in learning in many different ways.

However, music, art, crafts and dance can give students with learning disabilities a chance to express themselves through different media and gain confidence along the way.   

The arts bring children and teens with disabilities great joy and build high self-esteem. The arts might keep a disengaged student from dropping out of school—and help them to improve in academic areas.
