Switching Up Adapted Toys
Presented by: Phil Weaver, creator of Switchamajig
Phil Weaver, creator of the Switchamajig, gives a rousing call to action that a wider range of toys can be adapted for a wider population of children (and fun-loving adults).
Adapted toys of the world unite! You are no longer restricted to one switch, to teaching cause-and-effect, or even to helping only motor-impaired children. Rise up! Use lots of switches! Foster imaginative play! Help all sorts of special needs children explore the world with an iPad!

Thirteen years into his technology career, Phil Weaver's life took a detour when his son was diagnosed with cerebral palsy. He started Switchamajig in 2011 to find ways to bring the powerful technology of Silicon Valley, where he lives, to bear on the everyday challenges faced by people with disabilities. At www.switchamajig.com , you can find multi-switch adapted toys as well as Switchamajig solutions to help those with disabilities play, learn, and control their world with an iPad.
