When Nick’s Grandmother called UCP of Eastern Connecticuts Disability Support Coordinator for help finding a safety seat for Nick to ride in, we knew what to do. And we were thrilled to help!
Nick is 10 years old and loves Nintendo DS, animals, school and playing in this school band. What he doesn’t love is riding in the car. Nick outgrew his toddler size booster seat and it was uncomfortable. Because of his Cerebral Palsy, Nick still needs some upper body support in combination with a safety harness.
UCP and Nick’s Mom, Cassie, found a Adjustable Position car seat system that would allow for growth, safety, style and adaptability. Most safety seats such as this have to be purchased on line and can cost approximately $1500.
Thanks to help from UCP and the Bellow’s Grant, Nick’s safety seat was paid for in full.
Now, Nick can add car rides to his list of favorites!
