The Family of Katia Nichols are raising funds for a iPad, an educational tool she desperately needs.

For those of you who are unaware of Katia's diagnosis, she was recently diagnosed with add/adhd combined type, bi polar and dystimia. Making her a child with special needs. Her condition may not seem to many of you to be as bad as some but she does have special needs that can be helped with the use of an iPad that we can not afford.
Katia's 504 education plan gives her accommodations for success in school. One of the accommodation in the plan is Katia is allowed to use an iPad in all her classes. Everything she needs for class will be loaded into it. At a cost of $500 her parents can not afford the device to help her, so they are asking for your help. By donating even a small amount you will be bringing her a step closer to getting the educational tool she needs.
Are you wondering how an iPad can help Katia in school?
Well a major problem with her is disorganization which leads to her being unprepared for class and work being completed 3 or more times and not handed in because she looses things. With an iPad everything she needs for class will be in the iPad. Books, paper, handouts, homework even pens and pencils. With the touch of a button everything she needs is at her finger tips and nothing will be lost. Teachers will be able to receive her work threw email or just by hitting the print button on the iPad. The iPad can hold apps for learning memory skills and even give her a whole library of reference books at her finger tips. This is just some of the things an iPad can do for her so please help if you can.
thank you

**** If we can double the goal of $500, we can give another special needs child a iPad as well
