The communication between professionals and clients with an intellectual disability, rather often leads to misunderstanding and frustration. Moreover, this frustration too often leads to reluctance and even aggression. The main goal of the simulation is to improve how professionals relate to and communicate with this fragile target audience.
During the simulation, the user is immersed into the perspective of a person suffering from intellectual disability. The user experiences what it’s like to feel overwhelmed, misunderstood and frustrated. This experience allows professionals to get a glimpse of what it is like “to walk a mile in their shoes” and how contact is perceived on “the other side”. Getting familiar with how their clients perceive contact, helps professionals to respond and communicate more effectively.
This simulation is in continuous development. More info will be released soon.
