Quality of Life Grants: 2nd Cycle 2010: Bridging Barriers
St. Mary’s Home for Disabled Children
This Quality of Life grant will help to support a project to add one ECO2 communication device to the two that are currently being successfully used daily. They are high-end augmentative communication devices that can be used via touch screen or through switches. The ECO2's are perfect for individuals with severe disabilities and high cognition. The success of the two that are currently used by residents has opened up possibilities for other residents whose life experiences will forever be enhanced. Grant funds will support programmatic equipment. This grant is funded through a cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (Award # 1U59DD000338).
