With these funds Arianna will have an opportunity to communicate with the use of an IPad and the necessary apps needed to assist.

Arianna is a beautiful 10 year old little girl with cute dimples and Cerebral Palsy, Spastic Quadriplegia as well as other health issues. However, when you approach her you get a sense that she has something to share, something to say. Unfortunately she has no way of communicating except like that of a 6 month old infant, crying and laughing to express her emotions. With these funds we will be purchasing an IPad and the apps, that won't only be used in our home but in school as well, utilizing http://bridgingapps.org/ hopefully training the school staff while working with Arianna. Giving Arianna the opportunity for communication is very important to us so that she may be able to communicate what hurts and where or why she's so happy. Our family cannot currently afford to get this as for we are currently trying to get her an accessible van which we also don't have the $ for but may have to go into debt to get, so that we can get her to and from her various dr's appts, school and specialists. With my Husband a Superintendent in Construction as our main source of income 8 years ago which has now stalled. Now we have our own General Construction business,in hopes to take it day by day, but no insurance for our other 2 Children things are a struggle. But Arianna's needs must be met we just need a little help. All your generous contributions, prayers and thoughts are deeply appreciated!! Thank You all SO Much for your thoughts and consideration in helping Arianna Communicate. The Garcia Family
