    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.

    Story

    Not being able to talk is not the same as having nothing to say.

    ABOUT ADAM:
    Adam has severe autism and epilepsy, he is 25. He is mostly non- verbal apart from a few words like "church" and "big church".

    WHY NOW?
    This morning adam woke up with a large amount of blood coming out of his right ear. We obviously had no idea why it was bleeding so heavily because Adam can not communicate in a effective way which allows us to understand his world. We take him to the walking centre where he is seen by a doctor and they tell us that the side of his face is swollen with a blocked glanned. I ask what this has to do with his ear? He had scratched his ear because the gland is connected to some part of his ear. They told us he must have been in a lot of pain and urged us to go to a dentist to get it sorted as he must be in discomfort.
    He must have been in pain for a while and we all had no idea because how was he suppose to tell us with the limited symbols he has? I couldn't imagine how frustrating this must be, to scratch till you show large amounts of blood, he must of been in a lot of pain. Then we knew we had to do somthing.

    THE DEVICE
    The device we are raising money for will be a regular ipad with the specific software needed to give him a voice. this will have every symbol needed for him to communicate day to day needs and reduce stress and anxiety. The software is by tobii dynavox and is 100 reliable and will change his life. he will be able to say things and be involved in conversations once learnt how to use it. part of the money will go towards a special case that will be damage proof so if he dropped it by mistake it will be OK. part of it goes towards the ipad and the rest will go to tobii dynavox to fund the software. if you think you can help in any way please do not hesitate!!
    thanks so much
