About Us

The Ohio State University College of Engineering started the Toy Adaptation Program (TAP) in the fall of 2015 with the assistance of the Battelle Engineering Technology Human Affairs Endowment. TAP facilitated workshops to teach engineering students and community members how to adapt toys for children with disabilities. The adaption process adds an external port to the toy so that an accessible switch can activate the toy without compromising the original functionality. Currently TAP is focused on in-class efforts and a yearly partnership event with Nationwide Children’s Hospital.
