Pietro, age 7, motor disability: improving independence in communication
Portale SIVA Fondazione Don Carlo Gnocchi Onlus
Pietro is 6 years old and he is affected by dystonic quadriplegia and impaired upper limb functionality; he can articulate just a few words, but shows a good level of comprehension. This paper describes the way towards autonomy that the child, his family and the caregivers experienced together. At the beginning, parting from the mother was a great effort for the children, who expressed his discomfort rejecting unknown people and environments. Later, the emotional instability gradually decreased; Pietro became conscious of his abilities, he found fulfilment in them and his interests increased. Therefore it was possible to start a project aiming to the evaluation of assistive devices allowing Pietro to interact with the environment and actively take part in educational activities. An orthosis, keeping the thumb and the wrist aligned, was prescribed for the less impaired arm. In this way Pietro, who was already able to use a device with automatic scansion, could use a communication aid whose vocal output was activated by the pressure of a button. Besides, a multimedia "open" software for the creation of customized educational unities was chosen. Finally, Pietro was given a postural wheelchair allowing the carriage of the communicator and the use of the computer without tiring transfers from the push-chair to the wheelchair.

Ermanno, 61 years old. Autonomy in daily life for a person on hemodialysis
ESPERIENZE
Ermanno has been on hemodialysis for about 25 years and has experienced two kidney transplants. Although in the last ten years the motor situation has worsened, he never lost his nerve and he used several strategies in order to improve his functions and make the environment more likely to have social interaction. By now, Ermanno has been using the manual wheelchair for three years. The adaptation of his house particularly enhanced the use of the bathroom. Outdoor spaces in the district have been partially modified to allow the passage of a wheelchair on the sidewalk after a request to the Local Authority. This project is aimed at further improving home accessibility and activities related to daily living (ADL). Moreover, in order to promote Ermanno’s need for autonomy when moving outside, we will proceed to the prescription of a power wheelchair. Currently, only part of this project has been realized, but the changes made so far have already led to an improvement of his quality of life and a lower burden of care.
