Projects that Special Buddies are exploring:

XSinfo.Club Frog XSinfo.Club

Members make adaptations of print materials to make them accessible to a person who: (a) is blind; (b) has a visual impairment or a perceptual or reading disability which cannot be improved to give visual function substantially equivalent to that of a person who has no such impairment or disability and so is unable to read printed works to substantially the same degree as a person without an impairment or disability; or (c) is otherwise unable, through physical disability, to hold or manipulate a book or to focus or move the eyes to the extent that would be normally acceptable for reading; regardless of any other disabilities.

WeFigureX.Club Hippo WeFigureX.Club

Inaccessible leisure activity? We'll Figure It out! Members share their journey of exploring various adaptations to make leisure activities accessible so we all can be included and play together.
