Student Innovation

Boyet Junior High students were tasked with developing a toy to be used by an occupational therapist who works with children who have challenges from cerebral palsy. The therapeutic toy needed to address the challenges of cerebral palsy using universal design so that the toy can be used by all children. In response to the prompt, students Ricky and Jackson designed, built, and tested an adaptive toy to help children with cerebral palsy.

Using pieces of wood, two handle bars, and two bike wheels, Ricky and Jackson created a toy that children could use with their hands. Thanks to their design and innovation, the toy can be used during therapy with children who have physical, sensory, or cognitive challenges.
