Mini Bio
Special education teacher, University professor and researcher since
My purpose in life is to spread EKUI´s methodology, that is, changing the way children learn and communicate through empathy and inclusion. Inspired by Universal Design for Learning, EKUI improves the literacy education process, making it accessible to everyone. It helps to identify and eliminate barriers in communication and in the learning process so that no children are left behind.
