Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or other special needs!
Are you looking for a fun way to encourage your children to play outdoors? Check out the Jabbit Set! The Jabbit is a new spin on the traditional catch and toss game. It is an all-in-one catcher and launcher. Simply flick your wrist to throw the ball and jab the ball to catch it!
There are several things I like about the Jabbit. First, users are able to toss the ball either underhand or overhand. This makes it easier for individuals with muscle weakness to throw the ball. In addition to this, it also works on the following skills:
- Hand-eye coordination
- Focus and attention skills
- Social and good sportsmanship skills
- It also encourages both fine and gross motor skills
