Your active hands have enabled some of the children and adults we work with to have an "I can" attitude about being so independent! We can't thank you and your company enough for your generosity. Someone asked me just the other day what the difference was if a child was doing an activity assisted by HAND OVER HAND or by using Active Hands. The assistance that Active Hands offers is the freedom to DO IT BY MYSELF!!! I regret not taping Kelcie 's first experience...squealing I DID IT!!! THAT WAS SOOOOOOO COOOOOL!!!!
