1. Overview of Activities Performed

How many state financing activities that allow consumers to obtain AT at a reduced cost were included in your approved state plan? 0

D. Anecdote

A brain hemorrhage in utero resulted in Xavier being born with multiple disabilities, including Cerebral Palsy, a seizure disorder, and speech delays. Undeterred by the challenges placed in front of them, Xavier and his parents have worked hard to increase his opportunities to have a typical childhood. Unable to find funding to help Xavier obtain a variety of assistive devices, his parents turned to the Kids Assistive Technology Program (KAT), MoAT’s funding program of last resort. Through the KAT Program they were able to obtain two Little Candy Corn Switches, two Little Step By Step AAC devices, mounting clamps and plates that will provide Xavier with easy-to-access speech communication and compliment the work his therapist is undertaking to further his development.

Xavier sits surrounded by his new assistive devices.
Impact Area

Every morning since his ramp and deck were installed, Jamall, a 21-year old resident of Kansas City with Cerebral Palsy, spends time outside with his dog. This simple pleasure was previously unavailable to Jamall until a Show-Me Loan made possible the construction of an accessible entrance, deck, and ramp that allows Jamall to freely and safely come and go from the family home. “He loves being able to go out on his own and down the ramp. It gives him a sense of independence,” his mother reports.
