Lekotek of Georgia recently celebrated 35 years of making a difference for children with disabilities at an open house held at the nonprofit’s Atlanta location. Lekotek is a DeKalb County-based nonprofit that helps all children, including those with disabilities, succeed and learn through play. At the event visitors saw an eye gaze system in action, experienced communication apps on the iPad and engaged with other innovative technology designed to help all children embrace the power of play. Since its beginning, Lekotek has used the power of play to change the lives of more than 6,200 children and families from 40 Georgia counties at its six locations.
