Leonidas communication device

Leonidas AKA King Nidi is 13 years old. He was born with Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus. He had a very complicated start to life, needing numerous brain surgeries. Unfortunatley after one surgery Leonidas had a brain hemorrhage leaving him severely physically and mentally disabled. Due to 15 brain surgeries Leonidas also has epilepsy. Leonidas however, defied doctors outlook and is living a very fullfilled and happy life. Leonidas is really aware of his surroundings and has a character that is larger than life. Unfortunately, his way of communicating is limited and this can sometimes get Leonidas down. He loves socializing but hates mummy having to translate for him!! We are wanting to get Leonidas an aid to communication and give him what every child deserves....a voice. This would improve Leonidas's quality of life and also give him the confidence to speak to people outside of his family network and hopefully help him make new friends. The most important thing for us though is that it will help to ensure all Leonidas needs are met..if hes in pain, tired, sad or worried etc he can tell us clearly, without us having to guess. Or he can share something special that has happened that day! We may regret this (anyone who knows Leonidas will know why! Haha) but can you help give Leonidas a voice?
