Reviews for Handson

Role: General Member of the Public
Rating: 5 stars  

If a person cannot hear or see they must learn by 'hands-on'. I watched as Gay Bellamy patiently helped a deaf-blind individual feel the shape of a comb, then spell the word usng ASL in the persons hand, then feel the comb go through her hair. Repeating this again and again until the person could begin to associate the shape, the feel and the name of the object. That whole process has to be repeated many, many times for each word the person learns. HandsOn provides training, enrichment and a home for persons who are deaf, blind and have additional physical and mental disabilities. I cant think of a more challanging task or a more critical need. God Bless HandsOn!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Relating to the particiapnts over a period of years, I have seen them grow in understanding and self care. they have limited potential, but HandsOn helps them be the best they can become.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

make the community more aware of the good they do and the need for physical and financial support.
