Teens with intellectual disabilities often need extra support in their daily activities. However, when they grow up and leave school they cannot rely any longer on others, such as teachers, mentors and peers to provide them with daily assistance. Bandjes is an educational game through which pupils in special needs education can develop valuable skills they struggle with regularly, like communication and collaboration, while exercising. The game offers a playful way to increase the level of self-reliance, by practicing social skills.
