Client Updates

  • Caleb's wheelchair is now all set up where he can control his cell phone using his wheelchair joystick.
  • Collin has been fitted for a practice wheelchair! We have a few items to buy and/or make to get the chair ready for him, but it shouldn't be long and he is super excited.
  • Tim has a new laser keyboard and foot-switch for controlling the computer.
  • Brian is struggling to communicate using his eye tracker. We're helping to teach his caregivers low-tech strategies for communication. ALS is a tough disease.
  • Chloe has new communication software. We're still struggling to find a good access method for her -- but we aren't giving up!
  • Fran is learning how to text her grandkids. She hasn't been able to use technology for 40 years. We are catching her up!
  • We lost a dear friend and client this summer. Rest in peace John. We miss you very much -- and the world has lost a gentle soul.
  • Alison is mobile! We're working hard to help her control her wheelchair -- and she is doing amazing things!
  • Amelia has had a hard time recovering from her surgery. We're still waiting on her to stabilize before we can help with computer and telephone access.
