Painting and Writing

At the 2007 LATKids summer camp - themed “We’re All In This Together,” with activities inspired by High School Musical - Charlotte Myers talked about her daughter Claire’s paintings. Claire was born with cerebral palsy and is confined to a wheelchair. She has no use of her arms or legs, and cannot speak. She communicates with a Pathfinder™.

Andy Seago suffered a childhood accident that left him without the use of his arms and legs. He is confined to a wheelchair, and breathes only with the aid of a ventilator. He has experimented with a number of input devices and methods over the years. Here he describes the process by which he arrived at the use of a sip-and-puff switch, combined with Morse code and the WordsPlus™ software, to drive Microsoft Word and other applications.
