What we do
DyvoGra team and partners“ve been bringing the culture of assistive technologies in Ukraine since 2015. As a social enterprise we do a lot for free to educate doctors, teachers, social workers, relatives to implement alternative and augmentative communication (AAC) for people with disabilities in their communities. This diminishes the stigma, been put on non verbal people with autism, cerebral palsey, aphasia etc. and opens opportunities for a real social integration.
In 2018 we had a project for migrants in Ukraine to help them to lear Ukrainian and adapt in this country.
DyvoGra was awarded twice for a social impact. In 2020 with The Partnership for Sustainability Prize. We did a free online course in AAC. In 2021 Hanna has got a Gran-pri for meaningful products at the national competition of businessmen.
Together with partners in civil sector we work on a strategy of development of assistive technologies for communication on a national level.
We are open for cooperation in a field of assistive technologies for communication. DyvoGra owes a collection of symbols that could be adapted to many languages. We also work on digital solutions for asssisted communication.
