Abstract: Assisting pedestrians with cognitive disabilities in their movements through a city is not a simple task. Despite of the new mobile navigational software available in the market, many of these users (and their caregivers) are still resistant to use them. In some cases, due to the lack of adaptation to their needs. This issue motivated us to elaborate a set of design considerations to keep in mind when designing navigational assistants for people with cognitive disabilities. Besides, we developed a navigational prototype for smartphones that was evaluated with two users with Down syndrome. Therefore, we also propose some hints about how the evaluation should be carried out.
