Spotlight on Partner Success Marilyn

Marilyn, who struggles with Diabetic Retinopathy, heard about NewView while receiving therapy for another ailment. She immediately knew she would benefit from NewView’s services considering she had been struggling with low vision. She was excited about the opportunity to try different Assistive Technology and was encouraged to trial a magnifier for one week.  

Marilyn was so impressed with it that she ended up purchasing the magnifier and now doesn't know what she would do without it.  NewView's website


Adaptive Baby Care Program

Did you know Oklahoma ABLE Tech designed a program to assist parents with disabilities in caring for their young children?

This program, supported by a grant from the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation and a partnership with SoonerSuccess, Oklahoma Developmental Disabilities Council and Oklahoma ABLE Tech, provides equipment to parents with disabilities or physical limitations that increase the ease and safety of baby care tasks. This equipment is available for loan until the family is able to purchase or until they no longer need it.

Share this program to support parents with disabilities.  ABLE Tech's - ABC program
