Please help Jess Karstens raise money for an iPad to use with her son and students with special needs and in her new music therapy practice.

I am a mom of a son with ADHD and language processing disorder. I am a 1:1 para of children on the autism spectrum. I am a music therapist. My days are filled with opportunities to help people learn and develop. Unfortunately one of the tools that would help me better do my job is financially out of my reach. I have seen people without the ability to speak make their wants and needs known through talking applications on the iPad. I have watched children who refuse to hold a writing utensil trace circles and figure eights on the iPad. I have seen children successfully move through their day without having a tantrum with every transition using schedule applications on the iPad. This tool would be a huge asset to the lives of my children and my career. I ask for your help to make it a reality.
