-------- CUSTOMIZED ADAPTATION --------- PURPOSE: To create custom adapted communication and learning boards for students with disabilities. These boards enabled students with high support disabilities to access communication aids and learning materials while they are in their different therapeutic positions. There was no commercially available adjustable board which could be moved into the various positions and be easily moved around. The original design called for a stand that was 700 millimeters high and 600 millimeters wide, with a 600 millimeter-high board mounted on the stand. The design also included a mirror facing on once side of the board and a Velcro-adherent fabric on the other side, and for the board to be adjustable to different heights and angles. This design was fine-tuned to include diagonal braces across the top corners to strength the frame. The height of one pair of vertical uprights was adjusted to bring down the weight of the stand. For safety, a Perspex mirror was used instead of a glass mirror was used. For easy frame mobility, 75 millimeter-diameter rubber castors were installed. TITLE: Classroom Boards. JOURNAL: TAD Journal.
