About the Program
Just in time for the holidays!
Families, professionals, and school staff are invited to bring battery-operated toys
(see examples below) to the SC Assistive Technology Resource Center to have the toys
adapted for switch use. The toys should have an on/off switch and only one action.
An example would be Flappy the Elephant as he only flaps his ears when he is turned
on or Robo Alive T-Rex Robotic Pet that only walks when it is turned on. SC Assistive
Technology Program staff and volunteers will help you create your own switch to operate
the adapted toys. Everyone will leave with their toy adapted for switch use and a
switch to operate it.
See the toys on our wish lists that can be adapted for children with disabilities.
