This year for Christmas students at North Dakota State University are modifying toys for children with disabilities.  You may have noticed that many toys have small switches that are difficult to turn on.  Making small modifications to switches and buttons can make all the difference of a child being able to join in with their siblings this Christmas and play with their toys.  Check out this story on Valley News Live.  There are also companies that specialize in putting accessible features onto existing toys.  Check out this site.
