A $75,000 grant awarded to the College of Education’s Institute on Disabilities from the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation enabled the formation of Adaptive Design Greater Philadelphia. Adaptive Design Greater Philadelphia trains professionals to use creativity and innovation to help more families have access to adaptive equipment. They use inexpensive material along with enriching techniques to create sustainable cardboard adaptations. The project uses cardboard to reduce the cost of adaptive equipment from hundreds of dollars to less than 50 dollars.
