Brazilian child creates autistic child literacy application
Diagnosis of children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder TEA) does not always happen early. Depending on the level, it can be confused with shyness or a simple difficulty of social interaction. When family members and doctors discover that a child has autism before the literacy period, they can help make this process more suitable for the development of the child. To that end, a Brazilian woman created an application to help children with TEA write and read.
He was christened Brainy Mouse, or "Smart Mouse," in a free translation, and is available for devices with Android or iOS. In the game, the child has to help a mouse to form words as if it were a recipe, where the ingredients are the syllables. While doing this, they should also escape the cook.
The game works literacy in a playful way. In addition, it stimulates empathy as it inserts the notions of empathy and collaboration, since the mouse and the child playing are allies. At the end of each stage, the player gains one to three stars, according to their performance.
The application was created by the Brazilian Ana Sarrizo, in a research that lasted four years at Babson College, in the United States.
Autism Spectrum Disorder
Autism Spectrum Disorder is a developmental disorder that usually appears in the first three years of a child's life and compromises communication skills and social interaction. It is divided into three types: Asperger's Syndrome, Autistic Disorder or Classical Autism and Invasive Developmental Disorders, which may have three levels.
The causes of autism are still unknown, but research in the area is increasingly intense.
To create and educate a child requires dedication, attention, patience, and plenty of time. Parents need to divide their daily hours between taking the child to school, swimming, English classes, the doctor and preparing dinner, and having to work and perform other personal activities. According to a study conducted by the Catholic University of Lovanio, Belgium, physical and emotional exhaustion affects one in 10 parents.
Baby sleep is always a tricky issue. I once read a baby explaining how not to let the moms sleep. I showed the text to my mother, a grandmother of several grandchildren with her 85 years. After reading it, she laughed a lot and said it was all true. In the text, the baby explains that when the crying mother comes to the crib, nursing, breastfeeding, changing diapers and girl to sleep.
