    This paper presents an experience of participatory design with peoplewith intellectual disabilities. The main goal was to create a Sheltered Social Network intended to train people with cognitive disabilities in the use of social networks and to allow the early detection of any type of danger they could face when they use a regular social network. In the first phase, we designed a strategy to allow the users to participate in the discussions without restrictions or barriers. In the second phase, we successfully applied this strategy in order to develop the Guremintza social network.
