Give to the Toy Adaptation Program
Provide joyful learning to children with special needs

Interactive toys are great learning tools for young children. These toys physically and verbally interact with kids, and parents and children alike love the learning possibilities created by playful technology. However, this joy is not accessible for the many families who have a child with a physical disability. The Toy Adaptation Program (TAP) addresses this need by creating experiences for Ohio State students and community members to apply their engineering knowledge to adapt interactive toys for children with special needs.

 

First, TAP leads workshops to teach how to adapt interactive toys for children with special needs. By applying their technical and problem solving skills, TAP participants experience first-hand the direct impact this work has for children with special needs and their families. TAP then donates all of their work to toy-lending libraries, therapists, or directly to the families who have children with special needs.

 

By making a gift to TAP, you help our engineering students give the gift of play to children who need their help the most.
