By working with Penn-Mar Human Services, Toni, a hard-working single mother, discovered David was eligible for a Low Intensity Support Services (LISS) grant which “is designed to improve an individual or family’s quality of life, increase or maintain independence, and participate in their communities.”
Through Penn-Mar, Toni was awarded a check for daycare reimbursement and a tablet device as assistance technology. The grant was used to supply David with sensory sensitive gear and other items to help create a personal space at home where he can be comfortable, safe and happy. The tablet is something that David uses daily as a ‘quiet time’ toy to strengthen his early learning skills.
David is now thriving in pre-K.
