The Adaptive Design Association designs and builds customized, environmentally-conscious adaptations for children with special needs. We provide courses in adaptive design and cardboard carpentry to clinicians and educators from all over the world to effectively meet individual need.

Cardboard Basics in Adaptive Design is Day 1 of a 3-day series, Adaptive Devices Made to Fit, in which participants learn basic construction techniques for single-layer and tri-wall cardboard and safe hand and power tool use to make a basic adaptation and a user-specific adaptation with justification.

In day 1, participants conduct a self-guided tour of customized equipment and view a film short outlining 2 case studies. Participants learn basic construction techniques for single-layer cardboard and safe hand tool use. Participants individually make a pen holder; then in small groups, design and build a mock-up seat insert with appropriate features such as laterals and footrests, providing justification for the adaptation.
