Today Heidi received an iPad, thanks to the FaHCSIA Helping Children with Autism Funding.
I took a walk with Annie this evening and we discussed why Heidi got an iPad and Annie did not – we simply couldn’t afford to buy one ourselves. Annie asked how we had gotten the money for Heidi’s and I explained about the Helping Children with Autism funding and how it ended when the child turned 7yo, but that Annie had never received it because she got her diagnosis after the age of 6.
Annie was very upset, not that Heidi recieved an iPad (although she is a little envious, as are we all), but at the unfairness of the system. She asked me to record this short video and put it on YouTube to explain her feelings on the matter.
