Kwido’s cognitive stimulation arrives in Chile to support people with disabilities
Today we are very happy to tell you about a new milestone in the development of Kwido. For some time now, aspects of Kwido, such as cognitive stimulation, have been used in various countries and languages, being translated into more than 10 different languages (we are now incorporating Greek and Hungarian).
In this journey, we have also reached Latin American countries such as Colombia, Mexico and Chile.
An example of this is the Arando Esperanza Foundation in Santiago de Chile. It is a non-profit foundation that aims to promote, develop, sponsor and implement inclusive culture and diversity programs in different sectors of society. Arando Esperanza develops programs as a placement agency that promote the social and labor insertion of people with disabilities, through a unique model of labor inclusion Arespe (social innovation to the methodology of Supported Employment).
After learning about Kwido and visiting us personally in 2020, the Foundation began using Kwido Mementia to work with seniors in cognitive stimulation in the “Aging Well” program. However, it has been very interesting to see that the Foundation has also oriented its use towards the cognitive evaluation of job candidates in the open market in order to assess the skills required by the position, using Kwido Mementia to perform a battery of exercises that allows the evaluation of the position based on their diagnosis, and the functions, tasks and activities of the position for which people with disabilities are applying. In such a way that it is used for people on their way to labor inclusion.
It is very gratifying for us to learn about this type of initiative where Kwido Mementia also helps to improve the quality of life of people with functional diversity.
