Joseph Loves his new iPad Air
Joseph, diagnosed with cerebral palsy and requires the use of a wheelchair, loves to watch Mickey Mouse and YouTube videos. Thanks to his Shopping Spree Dream he can now watch all his favorite YouTube videos on his new iPad Air. He also purchased some new clothes.
Joseph says Thank You!
“Joseph really enjoys his new iPad Air with the Apple Pencil. It is by far his favorite thing to do. He has always enjoyed using things like cell phones and iPad’s. He uses an iPad through school as an adaptive device but he’s limited as to what he can do on that device. Joe was excited to go shopping at the Apple store where he got to pick out his own personal iPad that he can use for playing on. He spends many hours watching Mickey Mouse videos (his favorite) as well as YouTube children videos and listens to the songs of Mommy and Me. Also, with the new pen, he is learning to make lines and drawings . He is having a lot of fun the last days of his summer vacation and will enjoy this present for a long time to come.” – mom, Angelica
The CDC defines cerebral palsy as “a group of disorders that affect a person’s ability to move and maintain balance and posture.” CP, as it is also known, is caused by brain damage or abnormal brain development and affects a person’s muscle control. The degree of severity can range from person to person and can be accompanied by related conditions.
