Special Needs – Toy Design

Brief: To design a game for a special needs child.
User: Autistic child (teenage)
NGO: Udaan, Noida
Dimensions: Inches
Brief backstory: One of the common challenges an autistic child faces is remembering shapes, numbers and colours. They have a tendency to forget what they learnt the last time. The objective was to help them learn the basics in a fun indoor spinning wheel game.
How it’s played: The outer and the inner circles are spun, which indicates a number and a colour. The child has to match the number of shapes with the colour given in the bigger circles. The outcomes are always at random.
