Hi Geraldine & Jen,
We just wanted to say thank you, to you and everyone involved in the mobile phone recycling
offer which allowed us to get an ipad for our son.
The ipad is such a great tool for him as he is learning whilst enjoying himself without realising. He will use the phonics apps without prompting which provide reinforcements in terms clapping and cheering noises when he gets things correct which he loves.
The ipad, together with the wonderful schooling he is getting, means that from being non verbal, he began saying words last month which were clear and appropriate and he now attempts to say every word you offer him. The fact that we can now get a verbal response from him when we talk to him means the world to us and gives us great hope for his future.
An additional benefit, directly from this offer, came when his grandad when back to his old employers to hopefully collect some old mobiles and they then gave two free ipads to the school voluntarily which was fantastic.
Once again, thank you to everyone who made this happen and we hope everyone who manages to get an ipad sees as much benefit and delight in their child as we have in our son.
Please see attached a couple of photos of him with ipad.
