2015 Winner - Elliott Conecker

Elliott was born with vision impairments and developmental delays that impact his capacity to interact with his family and peers.  His parents had Elliott's first speech/hearing evaluation when he was not yet two, in hopes of getting a jump on determining which adaptive devices could help him thrive in his toddler years and hit the ground running in pre-school.  It was determined Elliott engaged well with speech generating devices and cause/effect switches to explore his environment.  The Eric Fund provided colorful toys and adaptive switches to help him learn to communicate and interact with is family.
