This project encourages the writing of poetry for people with intellectual disabilities, both for their enjoyment and for the enhancement of language skills. Through using the methods offered here, individuals acquire skills that allow them to become more confident participants in verbal communication.

The custom-made online component of this project features an interactive version of the steps involved in writing a poem and makes available a significant amount of resources on the subject for attendants, therapists, parents and teachers.

This is a Blindschelders & Raadsman project.

What I did for this website:

In 2021 we decided to reorganize the site to make it more user friendly. With our list of resources continuing to grow, with many new featured projects to display, and a wealth of new articles focused on our subject matter, we needed to make this bounty of information easier to navigate and search through. I used WordPress and a very flexible existing theme to redesign and update the website to accommodate every requirement.
