We thank you for your time and hope that you can help us reach the goal of communicating with our little girl. Thank you, The Chmielewski's

Makayla is a sweet and social little girl. She is happy and enjoys all sorts of music, especially Veggie Tales Songs. She dances on the floor and tries to sing along. We are trying to get an iPad to help her with communication and motor skills. She is almost 3 and only says a few words and isn't walking yet. She doesn't have a specific diagnosis just yet but maybe in time we will find more information. She has had a complicated medical history but for now we know she has epilepsy and a rare hemolytic anemia. She also has a g-tube for feeding. She is quite a pleasure to know and would make you smile in seconds of meeting her. She is being seen at Kennedy Krieger, they were the first to mention an iPad for her. Since then multiple speech therapist and teachers we have met have explained that an iPad may be able to help a lot with communication. We have been working on using pictures (on paper) for her to communicate but she’s not responding. We are hoping that we can find some apps that will really help us communicate with her. She seems to have a great understanding but struggles telling us what she wants. Makaylas 3rd birthday is fast approaching and we would really like to be able to give her an iPad for the occasion.
