The most critical learning stage in a child’s development occurs within the first years of life, when they acquire the most important vocabulary. Statistics show that children at the age of 6 have almost 1,000 words in their vocabulary. Unfortunately, deaf children only acquire 50 words. This technology offers an early intervention for deaf children from 1-7 years of age that brings about remarkable change in their lives. The SeeDo robot will play with hearing-impaired children and talk to them in sign language while telling them stories that will help to increase their vocabulary.
