Amy & Beth
CCAMR provided funding for Scott to purchase an iPad with a communication app called Proloquo2Go. Scott says, "I use my iPad to communicate with my mom, staff, and boss by email if I am sick. I talk to coworkers and friends to calm my stress. I use my iPad to talk to doctors about medical problems."
Marci & Austin
Marci and Austin were awarded a grant from CCAMR to put a ramp conversion on their family's van. According to the family, the ramp allows for Marci and Austin to have increased independence in getting in and out of the van and allows for them to get the the store, appointments, and visits with family and friends much more quickly and conveniently.
The mini grant that AJ received from CCAMR provided him with funds to get needed dental work to save a tooth that needed to be repaired and crowned. AJ said, "You helped me a lot, and now I have a great smile!"
