Paras is 12 years old and lives in Gosforth Newcastle upon
Tyne. Paras is autistic and has great difficulties with fine and gross motor
skills, impacting particularly upon his handwriting. Although Paras has access
to computers at school his teachers and parents were concerned that he could
not continue his progress at home and requested assistance to provide a laptop
upon which he could further his studies, complete homework and access ‘Type to
Learn' programmes to help him to build self esteem and boost his confidence.
Paras was awarded his brand new laptop at a special assembly held by ‘Newcastle School For Boys' , whose tremendous fundraising efforts enabled him and others to benefit from new, life- changing equipment!
