Abstract

At Laboratory of Cognitive Neuropsychology of the Benjamin Constant Institute (NEUROLAB-IBC) was realized a study aiming at exploiting the cognitive component and a possible clinical guidelines of children with congenital blindness from the adaptation of Planned Codes subtest of Das and Naglieri and the use of artificial intelligence laboratory Orange Canvas of the University of Ljubljana. Due to the scarcity of neuropsychological tests that assess brain function in congenital blind children in Brazil, Planned Codes provided satisfactory scenery and needed to adapt to the reality of the applicator and children, containing, therefore, features tactile, visual and translated into Portuguese. Moreover, the high-tech offered by Orange Canvas program, favored the possibility of completely automating the entire subtest. The sample consisted of 59 congenital blind children which are students of Specialized School, where 32 realized the whole subtest being 2 of 7 years old and 28 from 8 to 12 years old. To validate this study, was made a clustering of data inherent to the subtest with predictions drawn from behavioral analysis of children, through the Orange Canvas, where it was confirmed the effectiveness of that procedure in clustering the data associated with the predictions suggested. From the children performance, opens itself an intervention and creation field of neuropedagogical strategies computerized to improve the cognitive processing of congenital blind children.
