Abstract: The educational tools have become important resources in the learning path of children with special educational needs. When designing such tools its important to follow some guidelines starting with defining what activity it will be used for, how it will be used, identifying the user or group of users, what they are using right now to accomplish that activity, how the actual tool adapts to their needs and finally the specific design requirements. This paper presents a methodological process for the development of devices focused in children with SEN and the addition of assistive technologies taking as an example the development of a sensorized pen in the GIIATA research group at the Universidad Politécnica Salesiana.
Keywords: Design, Educational Tools, SEN, Ergonomic, Assistive Technologies
