To the people like me :)
I have a little monster called Polymicrogyria in my head. I called my little monster Polly because it is a funny name. My monster makes hard to talk and to understand things, sometimes. And it makes me have seizures sometimes too and it feel like a earthquake in my head.
I like to use my iPad Mini because it help me with talking and I can looks things up like the the right stuff for school. It makes me as other people. When I used my old speech device, it looks like something wrong with me.
My first device was a Vantage but I called it the Big Box of Words. My second device was a pink Vantage Lite but I called it Pinkessa. Now I am using an iPad Mini. I like the Mini than my OLD devices because it is smaller and sounds better and I can sent messages to my friends and my family too. It looks I’m like other people.
In the future, I want to help people like me. I can teach them how to use a iPad to talk and write to other each. I want to help my father with his new book and I want to write a book myself. I want to live in my own, if I get lonely and I can find my mom and dad. I want to drive a car too. I want to get married and have two kids.
I am going to use my iPad Mini to help me do the things I want in the future when I grow up.
