Weʼve raised £392 to Help pay for RPM (rapid prompting method) training for Saira Yasin who is autistic to help improve her communication and learning skills.
- London, United Kingdom
- Funded on Sunday, 5th November 2017
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Saira is 17 years old and is autistic and has severe learning and communication difficulties. Her understanding of language and words is much better than her ability to speak and communicate. Saira needs alternative means of communication to tell us what she thinks and feels.
We have been trying out (RPM) Rapid Prompting Method with her and are really excited by the results. She is starting to spell out words and answer questions and tell us what she is really thinking. We are practising the technique with her at home and need more training to get better at it.
Shola has been a befriender for Saira for 12 years and she is very close to her and all of our family. When she found out about what we are doing with Saira, she wanted to help us by raising money and came up with the idea of shaving her head! We have setup this crowd funding page to get the donations and then it will be off with her hair! Please sponsor Shola for this good cause.

Thank you so much to all of you for making such generous donations for Saira. Please forgive me for taking so long to thank you and give an update, it has been really hectic over the last few months. Below is a picture of Shola a little while after the shave. We are so grateful to her for doing this for Saira and we are going to make good use of the money. The RPM teacher who has worked with Saira is hopefully returning to work soon after maternity leave. I will post further updates on Saira's progress and thank you all again from all of us!

About the fundraiser

My name is Imran and I am Saira's dad. I am very proud of Saira. She is always trying her best and making progress, however big or small that is. I want to help her to be as independent as possible and be happy with friends and family who love her.
