Among the new elements being presented this summer are the over-sized photographs of the outdoor exhibit Nature Close Up!; the facilitated scientific activity Adaptation: The Winning Edge; and a self-guided tour highlighting this symbol of Expo 67 using portable digital players.
Results are presented in two parts: (1) case histories showing the dynamics of the relationship between the development of functional limitation and activity adaptation patterns, and (2) a comparison of patterns of activity adaptation in the group who developed disabilities with patterns of activity adaptation in the control group.
Here we focus on cases that illustrate how the development of functional limitations relates to activity adaptation and subjective well-being.
This exploratory, qualitative analysis of longitudinal panel respondents looked at patterns of activity adaptation in response to the development of functional limitations.

QUESTION 6: Are effective activity adaptations being used?
There are four options that can be considered when adapting activities: 1) material adaptations (e.g., In an arts & crafts activity, using four-holed training scissors rather than traditional two-holed scissors); 2) rule or procedural adaptations (e.g., when learning to play tennis, allowing more than one bounce before returning the ball); 3) skill sequence adaptations, which focus on preparation before the actual activity, (e.g., when eating at a fastfood restaurant, one would be prepared to order a meal with picture cards before entering the restaurant); and 4) lead-up activity adaptations (e.g., learning to play kick ball before trying to master the game of softball).
