The purpose of this interdisciplinary research project was to involve undergraduate students at the academic units of the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso (PUCV).

The program provided resources for undergraduate students to engage in interdisciplinary training, acquiring advanced knowledge in research.

The project addressed the use of PiX interaction scores in inclusive research through ongoing work with an interdisciplinary group of specialists in special education, design, and linguistics, as well as an advisory group of adults with intellectual disabilities.

Since 2008, it has been a part of a series of projects that have developed the work with interaction scores as a co-design method with individuals with intellectual disabilities.

The project is now in its final stage, and an article with its results will be published soon.

Researchers involved:

Vanessa Vega (MICARE research associate), Katherine Exss, Rosario Muñoz, and Alejandra Alcavil.

Project funded by the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso (PUCV).
