The Eastern Kentucky University Center on Deafness and Hearing Loss (CODHL) administers iCanConnect in Kentucky.

CODHL, with the assistance of the Kentucky Office for the Blind and Vocational Rehabilitation, provides communications equipment to Kentuckians who have significant hearing and vision loss. Through iCanConnect, the agencies are providing laptops, smartphones, braille devices and much more to those people whose incomes qualify.

Equipment Inspires Client

The program is strengthening connections among consumers and their family and friends. One consumer is helping spread the word about that iCanConnect is a game-changer!  His name is Bobby Begley. He’s 64-years-old and lives in Hazard, Kentucky. He also has Usher Syndrome.  He received an Apple iPad through iCanConnect and says it’s already made a big difference in his life.

“Bobby’s ultimate purpose for the iPad is to show others in rural Kentucky that by using technology, a deaf-blind person can connect with the world,” says Dorothy Brame of the Kentucky Office for the Blind.

Begley is a former coal miner who went on to get a Master’s in Education from Morehead State University.
