Adapted Toys

Adapted toys, games, learning, and sensory items are available for all program rooms at Redwood to address individual and group client goals. The ATRC coordinates events with the University of Cincinnati Engineers without Borders and local organizations to adapt commercially available toys and make them accessible to all individuals. These adapted toys are then made available for check-out to any program room at Redwood. Adapted sensory items are available in adult life skills rooms through a grant with the Ettlinger Foundation.

Literacy Tablets/Reading Areas

Redwood believes that literacy is vitally important to increase adult independence.  Samsung Tablets, mounting systems and headsets are available in adult day program areas to encourage literacy skills.  These items were funded through the Paycor Community Impact Fund.

Touch Accessible Platform for Interactive Technology (TAP-it)

Available in adult day, childcare and therapy programs, the TAP-it platform is an interactive learning station designed to provide accessibility to all individuals. With intended touch technology, it recognizes the difference between purposeful and accidental interactions with the screen, and mirrors any activity being used on the computer.  It is height adjustable and can be tilted from 0 – 90 degrees.  These platforms were funded through individual grants with the Semple Foundation, the Ettlinger Foundation,  and the Spaulding Foundation.


Redwood provides iPads in program rooms for employees to utilize with clients during interactive educational experiences for children, youth and adults with disabilities, and typically developing children. All iPad usage follows program licensing requirements.   Redwood has received grants and donations from various funding sources to supply these.

Dalton Technology Cabinet

A large variety of accessible robots, musical instruments, interactive iPad activities, simple communication devices, a visual teaching tool, mounting systems, and access options are available for use in all program rooms at Redwood.  These items were funded through the Andy & Jordan Dalton Foundation.
