Play and leisure activities are important for child development and are significant elements for promoting quality of life for all ages. People with disabilities, and their families, often experience difficulties participating in and finding accessible and age-appropriate toys, games and leisure activities. Advances in technology offer a variety of solutions from mainstream products, such as tablets, to more advanced innovations such as robots.

In this webinar, we show examples of available products, software, and apps for children and adults with disabilities and how they can be used in various ways and in a range of environments to afford and enhance quality play and leisure time.
