Abbie Awarded Communications Therapy

July 2012 – Grant awarded to 6 year old Abbie, diagnosed with Spastic Diplegia Cerebral Palsy. Abbie’s mom has been battling with her school district to get speech therapy for Abbie. Abbie is a bright girl but minimally verbal. Mom reports that the school district has done little to help Abbie with communication in the classroom and has given her antiquated modes of communication. Mom applied for a grant for Abbie seeking a communication device and/or augmentative communications therapy.

Aidan’s Red Envelope Foundation awarded Abbie the grant and funded the services of an Augmentative and Assistive Communications expert to conduct an assessment and make recommendations for a communications device.
