Recently, Kenny expressed interest in learning how to make use of technology to help him live more independently. But, because of his cerebral palsy, he was concerned about his ability to use tools that required manual dexterity.
The staff at the Easter Seals day program in Lakewood for adults with disabilities spent several weeks working with Kenny to learn how to use a tablet and discover all of the tools and different apps that are available to him. They also researched which tablet would be best suited to fit his needs for when he was ready to purchase one of his own.
In July, Kenny bought his own tablet and is now independently managing his finances via mobile banking, Skyping with friends and family, and using apps that help improve his manual dexterity.
The staff at Easter Seals congratulates Kenny on his awesome achievement!
