Our Winner

Soliz M. is a 3.5 year old boy.  He resides in Arizona with his family.  He attends preschool and receives therapy at preschool along with various private therapies.  He has Wolf-Hirschhorn Syndrome (4p-) resulting in a hearing loss, cortical vision impairment and other ocular conditions.  He is currently using a rocker switch with Yes/No responses and beginning to sign 'more'.  Soliz is working on improving his fine motor skills and his family is hoping the iPad will help him learn to use his hands better.  Soliz also has a little sister with the same diagnosis and the family is hoping she will be able to utilize the iPad as well.  Congrats to Soliz and his family.  We look forward to hearing more of how he is progressing and the opportunities the iPad offers him and his family.
