The family and friends of 3 year old Nikko Valderrama are coming together to help raise money for an iPad to help his communication skills.

On September 21, 2010 our baby boy Nikko got out the back door of our house and fell into our swimming pool. He almost didn't make it. He was in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit for 7 1/2 weeks.Since his accident he has had multiple surgeries. He is a patient at Shriners in Shreveport, LA. He goes to physical therapy and speech therapy at Sutton Childrens Hospital. Since Nikko's accident he has great difficulty communicating in all areas. Recently his speech therapist introduced him to an iPad. He shows alot of interest in it. It kept his attention the whole time, which doesn't happen very often. She had him pushing different buttons to get different results and he did very well. She told us that it would be very useful for Nikko to have one of his own so he could use it at home. Nikko is almost 3 now. In this past year he has come so far. He is learning new things and showing improvement all the time. We want to do everything we can to maximize Nikko's potential and support his recovery. Any donations you could make would be a huge blessing. Thank you in advance for all your support.
