Jonathan is a ten-year-old who has diagnosis of cerebral palsy, autism, and pervasive developmental disorder. A Kidlite Barrel would help provide Jonathan therapy for these diagnoses. By using the barrel, Johnathan will develop his balance and coordination skills as well as gain trunk strength. The barrel also allows Johnathan to satisfy his desire of spin-vestibular input, which helps brain stimulation and can be calming for someone with autism.
However, his family’s insurance wouldn’t cover the cost of a Kidlite Barrel. HCCI stepped in to buy the barrel for Jonathan. Now he can work more on his therapy and build up his coordination and balance.
If you want to help children like Jonathan, consider making a monetary donation to HCCI.
