Technology is Changing the Lives of Those with Disabilities, Including Christopher Hill

Below is a link to a short video that highlights just how technology continues to open up the world for those with disabilities, including Christopher Hill, who has cerebral palsy and uses a head switch to activate his computer.

In the video, Christopher talks the viewer through his work process, and in doing so, gives us all a lesson in determination, patience and fortitude. Please, take time to watch, listen and learn.

Technology had begun to open up my son's world in terrific ways shortly before Eric passed away, too. So I find this clip both exciting for what it offers others with special needs, and bittersweet for what could have been for my own child.

State-of-the-art technology continues to unlock the world for deserving individuals in priceless ways. That equals cherished freedom of expression.

Watch the video here.
