Christopher is a young man who has spina bifida, global developmental delay and increased seizure activity. As a result of his seizures, Christopher has a significant decrease in his ability to walk and transfer. He has also shown an increase in fatigue, further contributing to more time spent in his wheelchair. This change in health created significant barriers for Christopher and his family.
With some financial assistance through our Vehicle Adaptation Program grant, this family is now able to access services outside their home with greater ease. The purchase of the adapted van has helped to ensure that Christopher remains an active and engaged member in his community and also benefits his health long term. Congratulations on your new set of wheels, Christopher!
