    Story

    From a young age we notice some unusual behaviours from Harvey and decided to seek advice from various professionals. a couple of years later after various tests and assessments from different professionals we finally got the answers we had waited so long for. At the age of 3 we received a diagnosis of autismn spectrum disorder. I left the room with a piece of paper and a couple of leaflets. I felt numb. Since then It's a never ending battle from getting a place in the right school to finding the right dentist! Harvey is non verbal and we have worked closley with speech and language therapists for years to try and find the right method for him to be able to communicate his needs. We tried every Avenue until we discovered LAMP. This stands for 'Language acquisition through motor planning 'and works on the theory that Harvey can learn motor patterns to use a device t talk for him We trialled it and Harvey really took to it. we bought an iPad with the app on it and it was incredible. Al of a sudden our little boy could tell us when he wanted a drink or when he was hungry. it was amazing! Fight over! WRONG! Although we have a good casing on the ipad he keeps getting broken. It just isn't robust enough for him.it has broken lots of times and Harvey is getting more and more frustrated. His voice as broken and he can no longer get his needs met. our speech therapist told us the company that designed LAMP make a device called Liberator rugged 7. this is very hardwearing and robust so would meet Harvey's needs and help him to communicate once more, however, it costs £2,400 and there is n funding anywhere to buy this for him!! we have applied to numerous places but keep getting knocked back.once gain we are having to fight for our little boy and his right t be able to tell us what he wants.
    I am asking that you help us purchase this devise to help Harvey. Any money at all that you can give us to help will mean the world to our family.
    lets give him a voice x
