Temple University occupational therapy students designed and gifted toy-like devices to assist children with cerebral palsy at West Philadelphia’s HMS School for Children. The devices included a non-slip tray for an electronic piano keyboard, a wheelchair-attachable mailbox, stackable leg rests, and an eating tray. All devices are designed to help children with physical disabilities complete routine tasks and/or engage in social activities. “It was fun to be this creative within our academic work,” said graduate student Megan Reid. “Today allowed us to see the practical applications of our work.” Customized, adaptive fittings can be incredibly expensive, and children can quickly outgrow them. This program, funded by Temple’s Institute on Disabilities, helps some families obtain such equipment.
