All of us get fortunate in life in seeing children growing up. As a child starts to crawl, speak, walk, it brings joy to the parents and relatives. However, children with different range of abilities often follow a different development path than their able-bodied counterpart. Recent research in XR Technologies, Computer Vision and AI are redefining interaction with electronic media in new ways which was not thought before. However, is this progress being distributed fairly among all parts of the society? Researchers often evaluate the accuracy of their system for best case scenario (or for expert users) but do they consider the different ranges of abilities of users? In fact how the recent advance in interactive systems is supporting users who cannot use existing interaction devices or need special interaction modalities?
