Mr. Richard Adade

Assistant Lecturer

Research Areas/Interests


 Richard Adade is a special educationist and an assistant lecturer at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST). Richard is currently pursuing his Ph.D. in Psychology of Education at the University of South Africa (UNISA). He is particularly interested in the education of students with sensory impairments (deaf and blind). He is also interested in breaking the communication gap between the deaf and hearing communities. He was among the brains behind the introduction of Ghanaian Sign Language and Sign Language for Health Communication in the curriculum of the various programs at KNUST. For a decade now, Richard has been actively involved in the teaching of Ghanaian Sign Language to tertiary students and, again, in the production of teaching materials such as videos to facilitate the learning of GhSL among tertiary students. He has again been supporting the deaf community through sign language interpretation. Aside from serving as lead author in the publication of some articles with the focus of sign language, Richard has recently collaborated with the Department of Computer Science and other departments in KNUST to submit applications to KREF. The aim of this is to secure funds for developing artificial intelligence (AI) that can assist in live sign language interpretation from spoken language.
