Emma is autistic with delayed motor and cognitive skills. She used an adaptive tricycles during therapy, but only for one hour once a week. Her therapist had recommended having one at home for more frequent use to help Emma develop her motor skills. Emma’s dad works full time and her mom was seeking a nursing degree, but insurance and Medicaid would not cover the cost of the bike. HCCI was able to step in and give Emma the bike she needed. This bike enhances Emma’s development, both socially and physically which will have an impact for years to come.
One year old Ezekial needed more than just his physical therapy. Leg braces were essential in helping him move and begin to walk. His mother stays at home to care for him and his father works seasonal jobs outside the home, but falls short of qualifying for many assistance programs. The family could not afford the required leg braces to assist Ezekial’s mobility.
HCCI was able to step in and provide Ezekial with the leg braces, leading to the mobility he so desperately needed to grow and thrive.
