Abstract

Deaf communities are quite unsupported in terms of assistive technology. These communities have many special needs in terms of Education, Communication and Leisure which, most of the time, are not attended. There is a great variety of studies that ensure the benefits the educative video games bring to children. However, Deaf communities do not have satisfactory softwares of this kind as well. The present study shows a set of guidelines, based on known educative video games models and on a Deaf children education methodology, intended to support game developers when creating educational video games for Deaf children. Following the guidelines, the construction of a game for Deaf children is presented in order to show the effectiveness of the guidelines within the design process and to assess them.
