iPad Grant & Training (October 12 – Lima)

iPad Grant & Training

 

Thanks to funding from The Fox Family Ride for Autism, the iTaalk Autism Foundation, NWO Apraxia Support, and Parker’s Purpose organizations are helping families who have children, ranging in age from birth through age 22 with special healthcare needs, obtain an iPad with a case and hands-on education to learn appropriate apps to use with their child.

On October 12, 2019, the full-day training will offer breakout sessions on visual scheduling, communication, daily living skills, data collections, math, literacy, and much more. If you know someone that has a child with special needs and could benefit from a device, please share this information with them.

Each of the partnering organizations has their own criteria in applying for a grant and their own individual grant application. All will help eligible applicants receive an iPad and train on how to introduce the device to the child in the most beneficial way for the child’s educational needs.

Note: Registration for the training is not the same as applying for an IPad grant; these are two separate processes, but both are required in order to receive an iPad.
