Amanda Frey

Amanda Frey, a 25-year-old student in the Transition Program at Pied Piper School in Alpena, has been multiply impaired her whole life, lacking the ability to verbally speak or move her arms and legs. However, her zest for life and determination for independence, coupled with strong family support and excellent educational care, has kept her on the track to feeding herself.

On Tuesday morning, Frey’s family, educators, and occupational therapist surprised her with the big reveal of a mechanical feeding system she can operate from her wheelchair.
