Autos for Function and Independence
SCIO once again took part in the Georgian College Auto Show at Barrie Campus on June 1. This was a terrific opportunity to showcase accessible vehicles. We had great day with a lot of interest and sharing of knowledge about the many options for vehicle adaptions to deliver function and independence for people with varying levels of ability. Participants included vehicle modifiers, SCIO community members who displayed their personal vehicles and there was even a driving assessment clinic!
Thanks to the events major sponsor Patrick Saunders of Humberview Mobility. Also thanks to Luc Barrett of Silver Cross Automotive and Wendy Nieuwland from Skill Builders Barrie who provides driving assessments and recommendations in the Barrie region.
The show wouldn’t have been the same without SCIO community members Peter White and Aaron Lillie. Peter showcased his corvette with hand controls and his Lexus with a robotic arm, and Aaron displayed his Chevrolet pickup with ACT modification on the passenger side.
Thank you to Georgian College Barrie Campus for once again including SCIO in their annual Auto Show.
