Join us at the Sept. 13 ADAPT Shop Open House

Join Southwest Human Development at the ADAPT Shop Open House on Sept. 13, 2016 from 4:30 to 6 p.m. to explore assistive technology and learn how to become a “friend of ADAPT”!

The ADAPT Shop is a workshop dedicated to creating custom-made equipment and supporting children ages birth to five with physical disabilities. Attendees of the ADAPT Shop Open House will have the opportunity to meet ADAPT Shop families, tour the building, and learn about assistive technology.

Guest speaker Honorable Randall Howe will share his incredible story of how his parents’ advocacy of disabilities lead him to receive his education and eventually become a judge on the Arizona Court of Appeals despite being denied access to enroll in first grade due to his cerebral palsy.

Guests of the ADAPT Shop Open House will also learn how they are able to participate in Friends of ADAPT, a community group available to individuals committed to helping sustain the services provided by the ADAPT Shop. Families, businesses, community members, and individuals are invited to unite in making a difference in the lives of children with disabilities.

Members of Friends of ADAPT will be provided opportunities to volunteer, assist with fundraising projects, and attend ADAPT Shop events. There is no cost to join the group.

You can help sustain the ADAPT Shop years to come through passionate advocacy. The ADAPT Shop Open House is not a fundraising event, but rather an exciting opportunity to learn how assistive technology impacts the lives of children living with disabilities.
