Hi my name is Dawn Shipp my husband Charles and my eldest son Kyle are doing the mini gear in King's lynn Norfolk on Sunday 3rd of May 2015 to raise money for an I pad for Kyle. Kyle has had problems for a number of years but we are only now getting to the bottom of them, Kyle was diagnosed as red green colour blind last November and then this March he was diagnosed as being partially deaf in both ears and in need of hearing aids. Kyle has also seen a clynical pyschologist who has said that Kyle has a learning , reading age of 6 and a mental age of 5 to 6 (Kyle is nearly 9) . We are also waiting for a diagnosis of Dyspraxia which would explain his traits and his delayed mental and learning age. We have been told by experts that a I Pad would help with kyles continuel learning as there are many apps we can download to help him learn and many apps that we can download for him to understand about his deafness and to help him learn sign language. We are a family of 5 so money is tight and I wish more than anything I could afford to go and get Kyle what he needs. Any amount you can give would be helpful as you will be sponsoring Kyle and my husband in there first ever run and helping to fund for something that could make all the difference to my eldest son.
