Well, Ninja Turtle officially has an educational diagnosis that puts her solidly on the autism spectrum.  Now begins the quest for services and therapies and finding the things that are going to work for her to get her on the right track to make the most of what life has to offer her.  

Several people along the path have suggested an iPad, and I have scoffed, as I have persistently been a very outspoken opponent of Apple products.  I know, I know.  But I really dislike all the proprietariness of the whole thing.  But there is a fact that remains.  In terms of adaptability apps for autistic kids, the iPad has the best options out there.  But, how can I make that happen on my limited and fixed income?  I was confused and at a loss.  

Enter The Puzzling Piece.  The Puzzling Piece is a program that aims to help raise awareness about autism, and also helps the families of autistic children through fundraising.  When a family has people buy jewelry items and list their name as the challenger, and 60 pieces are sold, that family is provided with an ipad for the autistic child!   So, that is what we are trying to do.  


If any of you can go to this site:

And then list my name, Lisa LaVergne-Pottgen as the challenger when you make a purchase, then that will help towards Ninja Turtle acquiring an iPad to further help in her therapy and treatments to help her be able to meet her potential.
