Mindmerge: Playscapes for All Minds


In the Philippines, educating neurodivergent children, especially those with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), faces a dual challenge. Firstly, societal taboos and a lack of understanding about disabilities make it hard for parents to seek help or diagnosis for their children. Secondly, the resources needed for such education are scarce and expensive. ⁣

MindMerge aims to address this by creating an educational play kit that breaks stigma, empowering families to navigate these challenges with positivity and celebrate their child's uniqueness. The project emphasizes an interdisciplinary approach, combining analytical and creative methods to provide holistic support to the community.⁣
