An Emirati girl publishes books to help kids with autism

  • Launching AR books at the global tech event GITEX 2023 in Dubai by AlDhabi Al Mheiri.
  • The immersive quality of augmented reality technology improves children’s understanding, involvement, and recall.
  • The books include instructions on how to use any smart device to download an app and scan the codes on each page.

As a tool for improving learning, augmented reality (AR) has gained popularity, especially for kids with autism. Launching AR books at the global tech event GITEX 2023 in Dubai, nine-year-old AlDhabi Al Mheiri—the holder of the Guinness World Record—is the youngest publisher to release a bilingual book series.

At the GITEX Youth X platform, she and her younger brother Saeed Rashed Al Mheiri introduced high-tech books.

Help kids with autism

According to AlDhabi, the creator of Rainbow Chimney, a children’s bookshop and publishing house, AR books can be a secure learning tool for kids with dyslexia, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

The immersive quality of augmented reality technology improves children’s understanding, involvement, and recall. Through AR, students can visualize difficult concepts, improving the effectiveness of their learning.

AR books have shown to be especially beneficial in one area: helping kids with ASD. Children with ASD have a variety of learning needs, and AR books’ interactive and sensory-rich design meets those needs by giving them a special and interesting way to explore instructional materials.

The books include instructions on how to use any smart device to download an app and scan the codes on each page. They can explore inaccessible areas, conduct experiments, study in-depth interior views of our bodies, learn about the contents of each planet in space, and observe objects under a microscope, among other digital elements that they can discover and interact with by sliding to open, read, and add.

They have released 17 AR books thus far, with some intended for young readers under the age of five and another batch for older readers. They are all tested and devoted to children.

These books have been published by the publishers; they are based on actual case studies that demonstrate how such technology affects kids with dyslexia, ADHD, and ASD.

Through advocating for inclusive education and utilizing technology to empower kids, AlDhabi believes she has reached yet another noteworthy turning point in her entrepreneurial career. AlDhabi has announced that she will publish children’s books that encourage sustainability for free as part of her ongoing efforts to empower and inspire kids to follow their dreams of becoming published authors.

She also introduced an engaging interactive website called Eco-Club, which uses entertaining games, videos, and activities to teach kids about environmental issues. The initiative seeks to increase public awareness of climate change by drawing more than 10,000 young people.

AlDhabi has begun traveling to schools and giving speeches to students to reach out to more kids. The goal is to motivate them to take on environmental challenges and become eco-warriors.
