I've had many students such as yours. Can he move his
feet and legs? I devised paint socks for several of
my students and would allow them the opportunitie to
create art. I've also made painting and drawing wands
from baseball caps for students who have minimal head
movement. There are wonderful technologies available
that allow a student to use
a laser beam to activate a computer. One of my
students had suffered severe damage when thrown from a
car. He could not speak, could not move arms or legs,
and was very lovable. They ( tech. people ) were
working on a computer program activated by the
students tongue prior to his leaving our school at 21
years of age. Check out the International Association
of Foot and Mouth Painters for some inspiring folks.
I had a twenty minute video produced by IAFMP that I
shared with all classes. Unfortunately, I loaned it
out and the video has disappeared.
