CUSTOM ADAPTATION PURPOSE: To provide customized platforms for various classroom environments for individuals with short stature. Platforms were needed for at least three different classroom environments and needed to be light and easy to move around the classroom. The platforms were mass-produced by cutting tubing to make two of each design, with the hand rails and legs in one U-shaped piece in most cases. The platform bases were made from plywood, painted white, and anti-slip strips were added. The platforms for home economics and the library steps have wheels at the front which are mounted forward of the legs. The wheels are clear of the ground when the platform is in use, but touch the ground when the platform is lifted at the other end so it can be moved like a wheelbarrow. TITLE: Starting High School.
