Slip on Sneakers for Shawn who gets easily frustrated with tying his shoes

Posted Jan 30, 2019
Shawn is having difficulty tying his shoes. He has worked on this in therapy for a long time and keeps having trouble with it. He wishes for a pair of Slip on Sneakers so he can stop worrying about his shoe strings. Often he has tremors in his hands and this contributes to the difficulty he has tying shoes. This would make his life much easier.

Shawn is 12 years old and lives in Wilkesboro, NC

Shawn is a great kid who struggles with the lasting effects of abuse and neglect. He has many special needs and requires a high level of care and attention. He likes being part of the family and likes to work on things and fix them. Shawn is a loving little guy who likes to eat, sleep, and listen to music. His favorite food is Chick-fil-A. Shawn loves helping people and wants to be a teacher, someday.
