Thank you, FIND readers, for breaking from your busy life to virtually met me!

My name is Kim Karwal and I am a Rural Solutions and Assistive Technology Center Coordinator at Easter Seals Iowa. I have worked for Easter Seals Iowa for five years now and have enjoyed every moment! I have a unique opportunity within my career to travel the state to support farm family members with disabilities and provide assistive technology support for children and adults with disabilities and/or special needs.

I am so excited to engage with the members of this blog to explore services and resources! Personally, I am a fan of the great-outdoors and enjoy an opportunity enhance others’ knowledge and passion for recreation. The Easter Seals Iowa Lending Library has a huge variety of recreational devices, this inventory can be found at One great device that is available for a 30-day trial period loan is the Rightline Gear Pop-Up Tent. This tent pops up quickly just by opening two clasps and shaking the tent. To take the tent down requires a few twists and folds but NO pole removal! We even had a chance to work with a Drake Occupational Therapy student that helped us create tabs and instructions so that anyone- even persons with vision limitations- have the proper instructions to put up and take down this tent!

To view the Rightline Gear Pop-Up tent, review additional details, or request a loan for the tent, please visit our AT4All website and enter #161400 into the search box, or click the following web link:
