News



I'll just say this: not even a picture can explain how incredibly cool this was. We kept trying to get Q to pick up his head (the kids were his biggest cheering section, of course), but the Big Red Button (6") was just too interesting. The best part of this nifty Jeep is that when he punches the button, he goes.

For a boy destined to be as much of an adrenaline junkie as we can help him to be, achieving motion on his own is huge. Have I mentioned that his favorite word is "go" followed closely by "'gain" (for again, of course). Sure, his motor planning issues keep him from saying what he wants when he wants to say it, often from doing what he wants in a similarly timely fashion, but who cares, man? The Big Red Button is here. to. stay.

Now I have to sneak off to do some long overdue rewriting of stuff that went poof when the old computer died. (It's coming, Kate. I promise I'm not ignoring you!)

Wow! That sure looks nifty. Is it a home toy (shorthand for 'adaptive mobility device' or does it have to stay at therapy?

Thanks for the picture. It's nice to have a face to put with the initial.

So very cool! Is this the "chair" you have referred to in the past?

It was very cool to get to meet you the other night. Call or email soon so we can get an art playdate planned soon.
