In the late 1980s artist Dwayne Szot unveiled the first edition of his painting wheelchair that would engage kids with limited physical ability. Szot has since developed his career to inventing tools that enable kids with disabilities to paint and draw, among other things. A young girl named Madison was diagnosed with spinal muscular atrophy early on and was told by doctors that she probably would not make it to her 2nd birthday. Madison is now 8-years-old and thriving with the help of the creative tools produced by Szot. Madison met Szot at a spinal muscular atrophy conference in Los Angeles two years ago and was introduced to the painting wheelchair. Since that conference, Szot has continued to work on his current invention while also developing new ways to engage with kids with disabilities. The Huffington Post published an article discussing Szot’s motivations and actions contributing to kids with disabilities success.
