The All-Turn-It Spinner “levels the playing field”. With the touch of a switch, a person with a disability can play a role in most board games, “spinning” the spinner, or rolling the dice.

“It made it possible for my children to play together for the first time,” said a mother of a child with a disability.

The ATI has been called an essential addition to every school’s assistive technology center, and was named “Toy of the Month” by a Lekotek Center. It has been cited in many articles and presentations, including Closing the Gap, as an essential tool for inclusion.

The All-Turn-it Spinner was developed by Dianne while she was employed by AbleNet.
