My daughter Casey was born with a brain injury. She has spent the majority of her life in silence. Through the years we have worked with Casey in speech therapy and trying to use communication boards. None have been successful until recently. I went to an IEP at her new school to put in place her education goals for next year. They showed me that they have been working with Casey with an IPad with a program called ProloQuo2. This program is helping her in ever area of educational development, but especially it is giving her a voice. By touching various pictures and sequences Casey has learned to communicate. It speaks the sentences for her. Today at our meeting her counselor told me Casey had something she wanted to ask me. Using her Ipad she said "Can I take your picture mom?" It was that simple. It was the first real communication between me and my daughter in almost 18 years. She took a beautiful picture of me crying!!!

My fundraiser is to try to raise money to buy Casey an Ipad that she can utilize everyday. I need your help to get Case what she needs to be able to let her silence out! Casey gets to use an Ipad in class for now, but we want her to be able to take her communication with her!! Unfortunately, we just can't afford to buy the device. However, if we can come up with the funding to buy her the device, Arlington School District will supply the program, which is very costly.
