Try-Out Program Adds New Items for Children

Society's Assets has a try-out program (loan and demonstration) at each office location. Hundreds of assistive devices can increase function for people with limitations affecting mobility, vision, learning, and other daily activities.

Twenty-five new items for children are now available for demonstration and loan thanks to a grant from the Kenosha Women's Network. By appointment, families are invited to check out the items in the Kenosha office for play, learning, and calming. Arrangements can also be made for families to try the items in Society's Assets offices in Racine and Elkhorn. Staff members will provide assistance with the review of assistive technology solutions. Examples of the new equipment include: social skills board games, a cocoon swing, switch adapted bubble machine, and a weighted, washable plush bear.
