A local child suffering from a visual impairment is seeking the public's help to win a learning tool that could change her life forever, both in and out of the classroom.
If Olivia gets the most votes, she will get to keep it for free.
Lily Lightaide uses hundreds of LED lights that are used to stimulate her to see. It teaches basic concepts such as cause and effect, taking turns and identifying/ building patterns, visual tracking from left to right,and mathematical concepts such as basic counting skills, identifying numbers and building patterns with blocks.
"She did so great with it we were amazed at how well she was attentive to it and wanted to work with it. It would be a great asset to the classroom and at home of course," said Debbie Cosgrove, Olivia's aide.
At home, Olivia has never looked at books or watched television. Winning this would help her be able to do the same things children her age do every day.
