For only about $200 per child, an amazing scientist has transformed the way special needs youngsters move.

Every kid deserves the chance to be able to move around and enjoy life.  This is the simple idea of amazing scientist Dr. James Galloway, who has invented an affordable, fun way to get thousands of physically impaired children on the move.  Galloway, of the University of Delaware, buys power toy cars for about $100 from any toy store plus about $100 worth of hardware store supplies and reinvents the toys as safe, reliable and easy-to-use  alternatives to motorized wheelchairs.

This is not only important for the child’s growth and strength, but their self esteem. It’s not easy being the kid in the corner and Dr. Galloway wants to change that for children and their families all over the world. Check out some of his success stories in the video below and please SHARE if you think his work is making a real difference in the world.
