The focus of Little Bear Gives will be to provide CVI iPad packages to families in need who have children with CVI.
That's right - they're getting ready to give away an iPad (plus some great accessories) to a child with CVI!
Little Bear Sees believes the iPad can be an amazingly powerful tool in the life of a child with CVI. iPads are uniquely suited to the needs of those with CVI because they are backlit, easy to interact with, and there is a huge variety of apps available to suit the particular needs and preferences of each child.
Their CVI iPad package will include:
- An iPad (first generation) with a link to their website: www.littlebearsees.org
- A copy of their CVI-specific app: Tap-n-See Zoo*
- A copy of their new book about CVI: Little Bear Sees: How Children with Cortical Visual Impairment Can Learn to See
All applications for the first round must be submitted by 8/30/12 to be considered. The first recipient will be chosen by 9/15/12. This is only the first iPad package giveaway. Qualified applications not chosen will be kept on file and considered for future giveaways.
* You must have an iTunes account in order to receive the app.
