woody_dino_240x180CanAssist is an organization based out of the University of Victoria that is dedicated to helping people with disabilities. CanAssist has helped many SET-BC students by making custom adaptations for cameras, video cameras and iPods.

Most recently, SET-BC required custom adaptations to switch activated toys. CanAssist once again fulfilled our request and they quickly made these adaptations in their usual high quality and timely manner.

The switch activated toys sent to CanAssist were Woody (from Toy Story) and a dinosaur. The adaptations that were made allow for a student using a switch to cycle through and hear the messages or sound effects.

SET-BC is fortunate to be able to partner with such a great organization like CanAssist. We are fortunate that we can call on them to fabricate high quality custom adaptations that allow students with disabilities to participate more fully in educational and recreational settings.
