1993: Designing new crocuses for hearing disability to use ICT by new sign language .
1997-1999: The Blind and visually impaired
We conducted a thorough study and programs through which we can
enable this group to use the computer without recourse to such
traditional ways,such as the Braille Method. We started by using sound
utterances and relating them with all the options and the commands of
the application of office programs and operating system. This method
will enable the blind to say the commands verbally through
microphone so that they can carry out the program options directly.
Then the center showed interest in studying speech recognition
through alphabetical characters without depending upon dictionaries
which were used by other international companies. Furthermore, we analyzed the
characters morphologically and we studied distinction charts in
order to reach a final and only solution, that is, the use of sound
card as a basis for work. This card should be programmed and
prepared by specialist technicians. These studies are still underway
until we arrive at the desired results.
2000-2005: New Projects for Mental Retardation
The (SCHR- CAI)
Institute for special needs with learning
disability studies has analyzed the cases and the extents of mental
paralysis for every child. So I created special programs
to train them through developing their mental skills and
concentrating on the investigation of the factors affecting them
such as the loss of concentration, directions and color distinction.
The programs and courses aim mainly at
reducing the gap between the mental age and the real age for every
child, and to develop his/her mental level so that he/she can have
the ability to act and interact with people with great confidence.
For the reasons I mentioned above, I conducted five researches and studies
on the local and
international levels, which can be summed up as follows:
�Teaching Mentally Handicapped ( Special Needs
Book : 200 pages size 17�21 cm
CD-ROM :1 CD

50 pages of records and files for learning disability children,

animals , foods , relations , arithmetic........
The program studies improving the memory of mentally handicapped by

�A study of the deaf - mute:
receives children of various ages and levels
and trains them on how to use the computer. We have initiated a new sign
language for symbols. The terms and the hand movements or gestures
are designed for communicating between the instructor and the mute or
Through this sign language the trainees will carry out the commands
for software applications. This experiment was so greatly successful
that our center attracted more children from other regions who
sought our new methodological approach..
