AbleNet Introduces Switch Adapted Toys

first_imgAbleNet logoHaving a physical disability during childhood can be an extremely challenging and difficult time in life. While other children are able to run around and play freely, a child with a physical disability isn’t granted the same liberty. They may not have full mobility in their legs or hands. They can’t join in on the games that a child without a disability plays.While not everything is possible for children with disabilities, not everything is impossible. AbleNet, a company that provides products and services for people with disabilities, seeks to help those children who may need their toys and games  made to be more accessible.AbleNet has introduced a line of switch adapted toys. These toys have been designed so that  a child with limited movement or dexterity can  play more easily with his or her favorite toys. Play is a fundamental component of the learning process and children, including those with a disability, benefit from the stimulation and interaction that certain toys and games provide.The switches on the toys manufactured by AbleNet are large and external, making them easy to access and easy to use. Once the switch has been activated, a child with a disability can play with the toy in the same way as a child without a disability.Children with disabilities often feel excluded. These switch adapted toys allow  them to join in on the fun and experience the most basic, yet most important, aspects of being a kid.To learn more about the switch adapted toy series from AbleNet, click here!
