Amy continues to use her computer
to explore new vocational, recreational and social opportunities. She is currently working
on a personal web page. The big news is that she has obtained a paid position after
volunteering for 3 years at the Museum of Science, where she accumulated over 1000 hours
of volunteer time. Amy will be maintaining a database at the Jewish Community Center. This
is the same type work she performed so expertly at the Museum. Amy is a hard worker who
perseveres to reach the goals she sets for herself. She has been working towards
independence for over 2 years now. Employment is a major step towards that goal. In
addition to working, Amy continues to use her computer to obtain the daily weather and
traffic forecasts. She has increased her computer experience and financial planning by
entering and tracking her investments.
Amy is proud of Betsy Kane, NeuroAdvance's
Adaptive Device Specialist. Betsy recently won six (like Mark Spitz) medals at the New
England Masters' Swimming Championship held at Brown University. Betsy says,
"Swimming is a wonderful sport in which almost everyone can participate." She
reminds people to never swim alone, always wear an appropriate floatation device for swim
level and never dive into waters of unknown depth.

getting her drivers' license!!! Here she comes ..............
