Alwaleed Philanthropies designs an electronic application to develop cognitive skills for children with learning difficulties

Saudi Arabia

Beneficiaries

Children in early childhood who are ill with:

  • Motor and cognitive developmental delay.
  • Hyperactivity and impulsivity.
  • Lack of language communication.
  • Low motivation to learn.
  • Loss of focus and dispersion.
  • Poor short-term memory and weak memorization.

Targeting Range

  • Family health clinics in all hospitals.
  • Primary classes in schools.
  • The father or mother of a child.

It is widely known that the first years of a child's life constitute the most important stage of his life, during which his personality is formed and his various developmental skills are mastered.

Accordingly, if parents and specialists invest this period of children's lives and intervene positively at an early stage, they will be able to develop children's abilities better and within a shorter period of time, they can reduce the growing problems of children who are at risk plus those with special needs and reduce the negative effects.

Based on this, Alwaleed Philanthropies worked in cooperation with the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Health and the Communications and Information Technology Commission to design an early intervention application for early detection of developmental problems and indicators of emotional and cognitive disorders in children with developmental problems or those at risk or the ones with special needs.

The partners have hired experts and specialists in the fields of:

psychological and behavioral measurements, special education and rehabilitation, linguistics and phonetics, behavioral rehabilitation, and software.
