Episode 18: Creating an ALL ACCESS LIFE!
Dan O’Connor and Bradley Heaven are changing the game for people with disabilities through their company called All Access Life. Jennifer and Emily from Laval Senior Academy are joined by Abegayle from Laval Junior Academy to find out more. Bradley was born with spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy. I've been working alongside Brad for the past 10 years as his aide. Over the years we've built a very unique and everlasting friendship. Since Bradley is non-verbal we have our own way of communicating with his eye movements and body gestures. However, Bradley also uses technology to communicate with the use of switches located on both sides of his head as well as an eye tracker. Over the years we've seen the amazing effects technology has had on his life. He's already accomplished so much at his young age and has the technology to thank because of it. However, we've noticed how fast technology comes and goes, making it difficult to keep up with the current (sometimes superior) gadgets. Our goal is to create a website that updates the latest trends and movements in accessible technology, apps, and general information.
