Dawn Syndrome's life is being facilitated by Information and Communication Technology (ICT) & Assistive Technology (AT). Assistive technology allows people with Down syndrome to participate in daily activities and become more autonomous and social. India is making crucial contributions to improving the lives of people with Dawn Syndrome and promoting their participation in everyday social activities. However, the use of assistive technology to support these populations in these nations needs to be improved. The primary goal of the current study is to assess the situation with regard to the use of auxiliary aids in the teaching and learning of Down syndrome pupils in inclusion schools and rehabilitation facilities in India.
Furthermore, the effects of ICT & AT on improving the independence, performance, and social interaction of students with Down syndrome were investigated. To accomplish these goals, two distinct surveys were given to a non-random sample of teachers, experts, and Down syndrome families in India. Overall, the findings indicate that implementing ICT & AT in the instruction and learning of Down syndrome pupils can help them become more autonomous and sociable. In turn, this can promote independence, social interaction, and performance in people with Down syndrome. The ability and talents of the teachers, professionals, and families still need to be improved in order for them to accept the ICT & AT and achieve the best results in order to realize the greatest and most long-lasting benefits of adopting it. The study's findings include various suggestions for improving India's educational system for students with Down syndrome and other disabilities. The study also makes a significant contribution to theoretical literature and understanding by developing a novel model for analyzing the effects of ICT & AT on Down syndrome, a model that has not been frequently developed in earlier work. Additionally, it has created new metrics that can be used in similar future research.
