In partial agenesis of the corpus callosum, the corpus callosum does not fully develop. Our client, a three-year-old girl with this condition, exhibits difficulty with muscle coordination, fine motor skills, and body awareness. She works with therapists on put-in tasks to improve in these areas. Commercially available put-in toys are too challenging for her and do not provide enough feedback. Our goal was to design a device which met the client’s current abilities, provided positive feedback and prompting, and helped her to improve her muscle coordination, fine motor skills, and body awareness. We created a put-in toy which uses RFID-tagged objects that trigger audio and visual feedback when placed into the box and which has ways to increase the difficulty level to promote continual growth in the target areas.
