C-Spire donates iPads to Mississippi Center for Autism

C-Spire does more than help us communicate via the world wide web.

At the Mississippi Center for Autism and Related Development, C-Spire donated five brand new iPads to help with the communication of autistic children.

The iPads will be used to increase the communication skills with children who are nonverbal. The easy to use touch screen makes it easy for kids to utilize them.

The iPads will also be used as a reward for children to use after they finish a task to play games and download their favorite apps. Major Wireless Accounts Manager Trent Taylor said, “Just with everything that’s going on and what they’re doing for these children, it’s an awesome opportunity for us to help out with our community and also give back so they can improve their learning.”

Mississippi Center for Autism Clinical Director Katelyn Martin said, “We have learners that communicate on the iPads so that to me is one of the biggest things we like to use them for. If I can speak to you and really understand what you’re wanting then that to me is a huge deal.”

Before today the center was using generation one iPads and they say they are thankful for the thoughtful donation and that the kids are excited to get their hands on them.
