G's story

Living with Cerebral Palsy and global developmental delay has presented many challenges, but this hasn’t stopped G (name obscured for privacy reasons) being a happy and bright person. Due to his condition, he is reliant on adults for so much of his care, and is unable to do the things another young person might enjoy. G spends his time in a wheelchair, and has a love of watching musical and dance videos, watching cartoons and playing games.

G's Dream

G’s dream was to have his very own iPad that he can use all by himself, and a wheelchair mount to enable him to use it when out and about.  

Having an iPad will help G access assistive learning technologies, tools and apps that he uses at school, but has been unable to use at home. Having these aids on his very own iPad will hugely enhance his communication skills and his wider learning at home and in the community.  

But it’s not all work and no play for G - The iPad will bring lots of fun as he gets to pick his own activities through the day. His family explained how “he is much happier and more relaxed when he has something to keep him interested and engaged. Having an iPad all by himself and for his personal use, will encourage more independent living and capability long-term.”

Since his iPad has arrived, G has already enjoyed figuring it all out and being able to pick which videos he watches.

“I can't really describe in words about how excited G was with his New iPad. His facial expression in the pictures is worth more than a thousand words!”
