Peter is a New Jersey resident with cerebral palsy. He wrote to Sony complaining about his PlayStation touch-pad interfering with his gaming experience. Alex, a Sony employee, wrote back promising a solution. He put in about 10 hours of work to create a custom controller with a second button that rerouted the touch-pad’s functions. Now, Peter can play and enjoy his games without interference.

Craig and his wife Kim love travelling and spending time with their family. Of all their activities, one of their favorite things to do is to grab a cup of coffee.
“We love our Dunkin’ Donuts!” Kim said.
In order to make those coffee runs together, Craig and Kim needed a new reliable wheelchair accessible vehicle. Certified Mobility Consultant Bob in our North Attleboro location was happy to guide the couple as they searched for the perfect van.
Scarlett Chandler of Huntsville Alabama is like most 30-year-olds. She enjoys being independent, loves going to Nashville TN, and is trying to buy a car.
