    Story

    We are walking THE NATIONAL THREE PEAKS on 14th-15th May 2022. The Three Peaks Challenge is an attempt to climb the highest peaks in Scotland, England and Wales in 24 hours. These peaks are Ben Nevis in Scotland, Scafell Pike in England, and Snowdon in Wales.

    We are a group of speech and language therapists and assistants working in Doncaster and Bassetlaw. In 2018, we completed the Yorkshire Three Peaks! 25 miles and 5200ft of ascent completed in 12 hours. Probably the hardest thing most of us have ever done but we stayed positive and supportive to the very end. Thank you to everyone that donated. We raised £1825 and were able to purchase 4 Ipads (and cases) and multiple speech and language apps.

    Since then, having shared the Ipads across our team of 25 therapists and assistants, we have seen how apps on Ipads can significantly help children with speech, language and communication needs (SLCN). Clinicians have found the Ipads to be an invaluable tool to engage children and help them to achieve their targets. Our children and parents have commented on how much fun it is to use the Ipads and how motivated the children are to learn this way.

    Some other benefits include:

    * Apps are relatively cheap, compared to other resources.

    * We travel a lot. Tablets give us more resources with less to carry.

    * Apps allows us to make the information we provide more accessible to parents.

    * They are more environmentally friendly than paper-based resources.

    * Ipad apps have enabled us to provide more effective therapy for children with severe speech sound difficulties that would have been difficult and time consuming without them.

    In the current post-covid NHS climate, in order for us to ensure that each member of our team has an Ipad to work with every child that needs our support, we need to fundraise again. Having to share a small number of Ipads means that some children are missing out. Please help us to change this!
