Kids of all ages enjoy an opportunity for fun and games. Unfortunately, some kids may feel like they cannot always take part in activities with friends. Assistive tools (AT) can make some of these activities a reality.

Nerf and water gun battles can be enjoyed by the young and the old. These activities are not typically accessible to all. Fine motor skills are needed to pull the trigger.
