Assessing User Experience for Serious Games in Auditory-Verbal Therapy for children with Cochlear Implant

Information technology is transforming different areas, such as rehabilitation, in such a way that serious games are finding a use as an alternative in hearing therapies for children with cochlear implants, creating a motivating experience in children. As a result, the design of products for children depends on the skills they have to interact, because if they have a better experience they may have a better learning experience. Most existing methods of assessment are aimed at adults, although some have been adapted for children with special needs, including children with cochlear implants. This article presents a methodology that provides support for following the necessary guidelines and choosing techniques adapted to the characteristics of the child. The methodology has been applied in the cases of 12 children with cochlear implants, where different methods have been used to assess user experience.
