Ian

Project Year: 2015
Child’s Name: Ian
Date of Birth: 3/10/2004

Ian is an 11 year old boy who lives with his mother, father, and older sister. He suffers from an undiagnosed condition that has left him with significant mental and physical delays. His condition is similar to cerebral palsy and he is nonverbal but is able to communicate through laughter, eye movement, and smiles.

Currently, the home has bathroom accessibility needs that we will be addressing. The one full bath is not large enough to bath Ian in and, as a result, he has been limited to sponge baths for quite some time. We plan on combining the space of the full and half baths so that a larger tub can be installed that will allow Ian to once again enjoy a normal bath.

We’ve got other ideas for this project: removing carpet in the hallway and extending the laminate, painting the hallway and bedroom, and adaptive equipment for Ian.
