The equipment was supplied by the client’s parents. It was modified so that it could be powered from the mains and a jack socket was fitted so that the music output could be taken to the external speakers. The client only had access to the controls to “Play” Stop” “Next Tune” and “Previous Tune” He learnt the position of these controls and operates the unit by himself when the unit is powered up for him.
The client is now able to listen to his favourite music and control which tunes he listens to without the assistance of a carer. He can replay tunes he enjoys, and fast forward past tunes he does not want to listen to.
