Friends and Family of Lilah Kate coming together to gather funds for an iPad to assist her speech development.

Lilah Kate has always been a quiet little lady. She sits back, watches and takes it all in. As you all know LK has no words. She had a speech evaluation and we recently learned that she has a condition called Apraxia. In a nutshell, she knows words and what they mean..there is just a hiccup when it comes time create the sounds and link them into words. She just can't seem to make that sweet little mouth work the way it should.

Some of you know that my B.S. is in Speech-Pathology. So she has a modeling/labeling/sound producing Mama at her service. However, she needs more than my 11 years-since-I-graduated-memory. So thats where the iPad comes in. There are apps that have shown some great results in assisting with speech development. They can assist her in creating individual sounds, then combining them into words, and words into sentences. Along with the apps, the ipads microphone and speakers would allow LK to hear her voice and the voice of the model. How Cool!

So this is where Mom lays down her pride and ask for you all to assist me in helping my little girl. Since I starting working from home, the budget is tight *very* tight. That along with Christmas coming just doesnt allow us to fit an ipad into the budget. So I set up this fundraiser. If we all give just a little bit it can add up.

I set the goal at $550 to cover the ipad, this sites fees, and the cost of apps. If anyone would like articles on the effectiveness of iPads and Apraxia, I will be glad to provide them.

If you would rather make a donation by check you can forward it to
122 Highview Cove
Pelham, Al 35124

I set the end date on 1/15 which is Lilah Kate's 2nd birthday! However, we are so close to the goal I am going to close it early. The earlier she gets the iPad, the sooner we can get to work :) What a great gift!

I know times are tough, if you are only able to give $5 thats $5 closer we are. Please keep the fundraiser and most importantly LK in your prayers.
