    An exhibition of games for special children was part of the arts and crafts fair of the International Art Festival.

    The exhibit was organized by graphic design students from the Veritas University. The event took place in the Casa del Cuño.

    According to Elena Torres, one of the exhibitors, the games and toys were designed based on a research on special children and their disabilities prior to the event.

    “Designing a game or a toy for children with disabilities is challenging. You have to study a lot to satisfy their needs and their parents’ expectation.” – Torres said.
