Role added on team:

Tania, who is working on a parallel Open Ideo Challenge, was perusing our site because her father has dementia. She contacted us about her dad using Deva, and we began a conversation. We learned that Tania has complementary skills in the field of UX and is a photographer. Needless to say, we were keen to have Tania try Deva. Now Tania will document her 4-year-old niece, playing Deva with Tania's father for the first time. The session will be hugely informative; we are most grateful to Tania!

Hi Margaret - great I will reach out to Torry.
Thanks,

Tania

This is Tania. Glad to be part of the team!

Hello, sounds like an interesting product! Please let me know if you are interested in some UX feedback. Though I ma not a primary caregiver, one of my family members does suffer from dementia and I would be interested in testing your product out if it helps you. Good luck!
