Effects of Four-Axis Joystick Device Interactive Technology on Children With Special Needs


In recent studies, employing self-made assistive technology as a resource in special education stands out as a crucial intervention for children with special needs. This study suggests creating an interactive tool intended to serve as an educational interface for children with diverse disabilities. The participants in this study were three children with cerebral palsy, multiple disabilities, and learning disabilities. This study uses a four-axis joystick device with multimedia and programming software to develop an interactive feedback interface to promote movement training and learning motivation of students with special needs. Utilizing this device, which involves a joystick, a self-modeled laser-cut wooden box, and connection to the Printed Circuit Board Assembly for its operation, enables a computer, tablet, or mobile phone connection. Ultimately, using this customized interactive technology involves utilizing multimedia platforms or program software to cater to the specific needs of children with special requirements. This aids in facilitating physical or learning training for children with special needs. Through the case study paradigm, we can understand the training effectiveness of children with different needs, including the effectiveness of the upper limb fine motor training process and learning outcomes. It collects professional advice and feedback from special education teachers and parents, concluding with a discussion of the study's findings.
