He is now able to wheel himself around the school in a standing wheelchair, feed himself and drink from a cup with minimal assistance. Jose can turn his head when addressed, follow one-step instructions and activate augmented alternative communication devices. This adaptive bike will allow Jose to play outside as well as further develop physical motor skills and endurance as he grows.

Tom and Tess Kelly, The Magic of Learning. “Tess and I have accepted that we can not change the world but we do have the power and ability to help change a child’s life, one child at a time. We got involved with The Magic of Learning a Discovery Center for children ages six weeks to twelve years old as a means to accomplish that goal.  It has been a learning journey for the both of us but we really enjoy the children. We have been fortunate to find and work with Variety of Southern Nevada as our missions coincide. The donation of this bike is only a start and we hope we can continue working with Variety and children in the Las Vegas Valley,” stated Tom Kelly. The Magic of Learning, LLC located at 709 E Horizon Dr. Henderson, NV 89015
