Earlier this year we told you the story of Luke, and how Occupational Therapist Heather Preston used her skills in Equipment and Home Adaptations to make sure that Luke’s new home met his current and future needs. You can read about the case study here.
We have some more news on Luke’s progress – he has now received his own Smart Chair from Smile Rehab. This means that Luke is able to use a switch to operate his wheelchair. This gives him the independence to drive following a line from his bedroom to his therapy/sensory room and to the sitting room. Importantly, Luke can now make choices about where he wants to be in his home. We hope that Luke will be able to do the same in school once he ‘passes his driving test!’
