Amik@ is an innovative project that connects people with and without intellectual disability (ID), in cherished and safe environments, through a digital platform that strongly follows digital inclusion principles. The Information, Communication and Technology (ICT) solution aims to promote interpersonal relationships and social participation of people with ID, in which life and learning experiences, provided by face-to-face social interaction, brings benefits to participants. A literature review was made on needs of individuals with ID, common attitudes towards people with ID, patterns of use of digital media by people with ID and guidelines that must be followed when developing solutions for improving accessibility of these groups to the digital world. Considering the evidence found, the technical and functional requirements of the solution were defined. Ongoing and future work includes coding the app, piloting and giving massive access to target groups.
