For my Girl Scout Silver Award, a project requiring 50+ hours to create a long-lasting impact on the community, l co-planned a community event where volunteers adapted board books to make them more accessible to children with fine motor disabilities. My partner and worked with Tandem Bay Area, a local non-profit specialized in Early Learning. Our project was featured in the Tandem blog post found here.
Adapted books are altered by adding easy-to-use tabs or ribbons to the pages, to make them easier to turn for children with fine motor limitations.
Our volunteers created 36 hand-made adapted board books during the event!
