Brian Bard's Testimonial (Program Specialist, National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research)
I’d like to thank Michael Dicpinigaitis and his friends for selflessly making a wide variety of switches (at no charge) to help me get back into gaming. This is something I never thought I’d be able to do given my quadriplegia and severe lack of dexterity.
More importantly, what Michael and his friends are doing to help young children with his JERICHO ADAPTS TOYS program is truly heartwarming. With a next generation of young adults like this in the wings, I think we’re going to be alright. Thank you, Michael and company!
Please donate to Michael’s cause
Warm regards -Brian
Michael is an amazing young man! He has made a huge impact on my students this year!! He has volunteered his time and used his incredible technological skills to adapt toys for my class. My students have severe physical and cognitive disabilities. With Michael's help, they are learning to access a switch and LOVING the feedback they get from from the toys. The musical ones are their favorites! Michael is genuinely interested in using his talents to help others. Spread the word- his toys are great and he WANTS to help!
"We would like to thank Michael at Jericho Adapts Toys for creating an adaptable switch toy for my son Chase. Chase has cerebral palsy and has limited use of his arms and legs and in a wheelchair. Michael created a switch to a zoom tube car trax that now allows my son to make the car go with either his head or arm via switch. Chase loves this age appropriate toy and would not have been able to have the ability without the switch. We are so thankful to Michael at Jericho Adapts Toys for creating access for kids like Chase. Chase smiles every time he plays with this toy and is getting better everyday with his switches."
