Abstract
A child with health limitations (HL) needs specialized methodological products to help him adapt to school. These products will be effective if their device, content, design maximally take into account mental capabilities, perception, and behavior scenarios of a child. The “Electronic Tutor” application designed by the authors on the basis of the human-centered design (HCD) principles and taking into account the specifics of the tutor’s work is one of the tools for adapting children with health limitations to school. The article presents the conceptual foundations of creating the application, substantiates the feasibility of its main elements, analyzes the features of similar developments, presents the results of testing the application, shows the possibility of its use by children without health limitations. The IT component of the project is not presented in the article due to the fact that it has independent meaning and tasks. The conclusion is made that it is necessary to expand the circle of applications of this kind, taking into account the characteristics of various categories of children.
