Toys & Play

Here at Steve Wiseman Associates we realise the importance of play. However, very many children’s toys are not easily accessible to those who can’t operate a trigger or a remote control.

Here are two videos which demonstrate how toys can be made more accessible. The first shows a remote controlled robot being operated from a computer, rather than a hand-held controller. The computer is operated by means of a mouse, but it could equally well be eye gaze or via a touchscreen.

The second video is of a water pistol which has had a large switch added to it, so that it is no longer necessary to squeeze the trigger- which would be impossible for many disabled children.
