Designed by Dianne while she worked at AbleNet. It was based on an idea submitted by a Special Educator, and was licensed from him.

The All-Turn-It Spinner has been called an essential addition to every school’s assistive technology center. It has been cited in many articles and presentations, including Closing the Gap, as an essential tool for inclusion.

Everyone can play–together! With the touch of a switch a person with a disability can play most board or dice games.


The All-Turn-It Spinner is a switch-activated spinner. With different overlays, it can be used to play games or allow participation in different school activities.

The sticker sets of numbers, shapes and colors and blank overlays make it possible for students to participate in classroom activities, call on their classmates, select topics for creative writing classes, colors for art projects, and numbers for math quizzes.

Who It's For

The ATI Spinner is great for families, schools and group homes or residential facilities. Everyone can play–together! Through switch access, even those with limited strength and/or dexterity can play.
