What We Do
We create low-cost or no-cost custom adaptations for people with disabilities in a landscape of expensive and non-custom commercial products.
We make this happen using
accessible cardboard building techniques in our workshop space and with the help of donors
We seek to share what we know through courses and presentations about adaptive design and cardboard building, as well as hosting field trips and internship opportunities.
We also encourage schools and organizations to send motivated students for intensive study.
We encourage everyone to design and build user-specific adaptations. We wholeheartedly support the founding of similar organizations and non-profits around the world. We partner with local organizations, such as the New York Department of Education to effect community change.
