Story

Amy has Rett Syndrome, She was diagnosed just before she was 2.
Rett Syndrome is a Neurological disorder, which inAmys case is caused by a deletion of part of her MECP2 gene. Amy has lost her motor skills and speech. Amy is like most other 3 year olds, and enjoys a good poop/trump joke, has a wicked sense of humour and a love of animals and being around other kids.

Amy has a Tobii PCEyego and laptop which was funded last year collectively by friends, family, work collegues and strangers! And Last but not least, mostly by local charity Friends of Alfie Johnson.
Now we need to be taught how best to use this, and develop her uknowledge of picture communication especially in the classroom setting as Amy prepares to start school in 2017.

Here are a few links about Rett Syndrome, and a link to her facebook page.
