The Madtoe Stikes Again
This is a success story that describes the use of various assistive technologies.
As quotes from the story: Being disabled doesn’t mean an inability to function; it only means we function in a unique way. We find better ways to work more easily and successfully. We must not give up. This is expressed by a quote that was in big bold letters all over my elementary classrooms and physical therapy rooms: “We Can Because We Think We Can.”
