Visit https://www.amazon.com/AlexaAccessibility and Make more possible with Alexa!
We’ve been experimenting with how to incorporate Amazon Alexa and AlexaAccessibility features into our daily routine. Obed really likes the music and Hannah and Bethany have been using Alexa to schedule their alarms, routines, shopping lists, and communications within our home. The Amazon Smart Oven (https://www.amazon.com/b/?node=213413…) is an accessible 4-in-1 microwave, convection oven, food warmer, and air fryer all rolled into one counter-top appliance. It even has an available free braille overlay! But most of all, we just like having fun and learning about doing things independently!
Obed, who is 13, was born blind, and has cerebral palsy, autism, and severe intellectual disabilities, also has an amazing safety bed made by SleepSafe Beds (https://www.sleepsafebed.com). But its NOT A CAGE (as a few viewers have tried to claim)! His amazing bed avoids the 7 major entrapment hazards identified by the FDAA in a typical adjustable hospital bed. Insurance companies like to push dangerous beds on kids like Obed because they are cheaper.
Obed’s Sleepsafe Bed had a price of over $13,000, but thanks to quarterly giveaway sponsored by SleepSafe Beds, we won a $10,000 credit on his customized bed. Our county’s Department of Family Services picked up the ~$3000 balance as a “need” benefit to Obed as we had adopted him from the foster system.
If you have a need for a bed like this for your son or daughter, you can enter the quarterly contest at SleepSafe Beds here: https://sleepsafebed.com/giveaway/?sixblindkids
Note: We are not sponsored in any way by SleepSafe Beds and receive nothing for our mentioning their bed on this video.
