Original Abstract

In this paper we present study and current state of research - the design and creation of new therapy for intellectual disabled people, called computer therapy. The goal is to apply resources of IT properly in synthesis with methods of special education, social care and informatics (informatics education), to create unified concept of therapy, which is easily accessible, long termed, applicable in natural environment of people with intellectual disability. Thus we finally compensate or decrease the impact of intellectual disability in lives of these people. To do so, we come from unsatisfactory state of last years following the success of touch devices achieved in special pedagogy.  Hence this therapy demands to cover this issues in whole life cycle, starting from mostly informatics area - the development of specific application through its deployment on suitable device to use it practise by intellectual disabled people by covering their individual, specific needs. In this application phase of computer therapy life cycle, there is more contribution from area of special education and social care. Such unified process is presented in designed concept of computer therapy, which is subsequently verified.
