To support Adaptive Design Association’s efforts to build organizational capacity and expand its reach in the New York City public school system.
The Adaptive Design Association, established in 1998, builds cost-effective, durable, and fully customized child-specific equipment out of cardboard. The equipment helps children with disabilities to achieve their full developmental, social, and academic potential, as well as more independence and a better quality of life. The organization operates a workshop where the devices are handmade and where hands-on training courses are held to train teachers, physical and occupational therapists, families and caregivers from around the world.
