Autism Fidget Box

Our client is an adult with autism. He is non-verbal but very mobile.

His Occupational Therapist requested an arrangement of devices for aural, mental and physical stimulation.

Tadvic created a box with two lids and an open area in the middle to fit a future activity device. Various devices were fitted to the left-hand lid. Adjustable bolt & nut arrangements were placed on both front face ends. A ratchet wheel and bike bell were fitted.

The entire unit sits on a portable piano stand or can be placed on a table top or on the floor. The apparatus provides stimulus for the client with regard to movement, dexterity, audio and feel.

SUV Steps

Our client is 6 years old and has Cerebral Palsy. She cannot get into her family’s SUV independently. She is growing too big to be lifted into the vehicle.

We considered options like a footplate fixed to the vehicle but multiple steps were required.

Instead we modified a folding multi-step.  The legs were made extendable, so the steps could be used against a curb (as shown) or extended in situations like a car park. The top step goes across the car door sill and is retained against the inside.

The steps fold flat for storage in the vehicle with the wheelchair.
