To help Eldin participate in vocational experiences, a mail route was established at Hill Top Academy. Eldin was supported by his occupational therapist in the development of the mail system, job responsibilities, cognitive aspects, mobility needs and communication access and use. His PCA and OT accompanied him on the route,to maneuver his mail cart, to match numbers to the mail files, distribute mail and encourage communication. The following video shows how Eldin has progressed in his mail delivery skills.
