Adaptive Play Experiences

Ability Bags & Boxes

We have partnered with Our Lady of the Lake/McMains Children’s Developmental Center to create special Ability Bags and Ability Boxes. These bags and boxes provide adaptive play experiences for 10 of our 18 Learning Zones and are available upon request at the front desk. Each bag is equipped with a communication book, map of the museum, a visor with a laser pointer to aid in simple communication, and a special button that adapts technology in the zones.
