FINDING THE RIGHT EQUIPMENT TO CHANGE LIVES
There’s a workshop tucked away near Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport that focuses on changing lives — identifying, modifying and building customized equipment that give children with disabilities hope and opportunity. It’s called the ADAPT Shop, one of several Easterseals disabilities services provided by Southwest Human Development. It’s a place where every project begins with an idea based on a specific need and ends with a family helped and a child’s life improved.
Families in search of answers get help from the ADAPT Shop in determining what equipment would be most helpful for their child whether custom made or commercially available. Then the program’s team of specialists work with the family and collaborate with other professionals involved in the child’s care to make that vision a reality.
Since opening in 2011, the ADAPT Shop has served hundreds of children and their families and created thousands of custom equipment solutions that improve their participation in daily life, developmental skills and better overall health. The ADAPT Shop provides a variety of different solutions for different needs, such as seating systems, trays, easels, toy and standing bars, light tables, feeding and crawling supports, tummy wedges, and more.
