At Cuker, we're always looking for ways to use technology and the Web to empower and inspire - especially in underprivileged or under-served communities. Inspired by a powerful 60 Minutes special, we recently donated iPads to a great organization called The Help Group in Los Angeles that serves children with special needs.
Ren Lathrum from the Help Center summed up the value of such partnerships: "Some of our kids have low motor skills, and not having the ability to communicate your needs can lead to a lot of frustration and anxiety. Having assistive technology like PECS are limited to the people who have been trained in that communication system. The iPads will give our students the ability to communicate with everyone they meet and lower their frustration and anxiety. It's amazing what this tool has done for our classroom. We can't thank Cuker enough!"
