Welcome to your site about ICT for MDVI. This website is for anyone involved in the lives of people who are Multiple Disabled and Visually Impaired. Whether you are a professional, a relative of an affected person or simply a person interested in increasing your knowledge in this field. We will be delighted to hear from you and share our knowledge to grow together thanks to your experience combined with ours!
Together with partners in Hungary, Iceland, Spain and The Netherlands we developed the iExpress toolkit. With the iExpress toolkit we facilitate professionals to properly assess the ICT skills of children and adults with severe multiple disabilities. The toolkit is focused on MDVI clients with a developmental age between 0 – 4 years.

Why screen ICT skills with MDVI students?
The current technical developments offer a lot of possibilities to give MDVI students (and clients) more control over their own lives. You can think of controlling toys through ICT, or simple communication possibilities, being able to play your own music or video, playing along with your siblings. Small changes can mean great impact!
