Harri discovers potential with technology

Harri has been attending a special camp for children who have difficulty communication and making independent choice's. Called "Camp Have A Chat", Harri got to try devices that would have taken months on a waiting list to try, as well as meet other children with communication issues. Of most interest to Harri was controlling a electronic communication device with the switches on his wheelchair., when he could use the device to control a robot. He also did very well in trialing a eye gaze communication device, and we will investigate these options further in combination with his teachers and OT's.
ABC QLD News were present to cover the event and a link to the video is attached.

We now can't wait to get back to school and keep the rhythm going.
