AAL has been extensively developed in the last few years, especially in relation to people with dementia and elderly people in general. However, there are segments of the population which are equally deserving of assistive technologies and yet have not attracted so much attention from our community. For example, there is very little research and focus on people with Down Syndrome, still they can benefit from AAL for similar reasons and yet they have their own specific needs and interaction capabilities which mean they may not necessarily benefit from current AAL systems without re-engineering. This paper discusses how AAL technology can be relevant to people with Down Syndrome at different stages of their lives.
