How to get your child an iPad from Hearts and Minds

It's very simple: collect old mobile phones and Manchester autism charity Hearts and Minds will exchange them for an iPad:

165 old phones = 1 iPad 2

There are other products available as well for homes and also schools, such as laptops, iPad minis and protective cases:

Note: you do not need to have a child with autism to benefit from this scheme - any family can take part, once they collect the phones.

How can my child benefit from an iPad?

Using an iPad can help with the following:

...fine motor skills
...relaxation .

What sort of phones do you take?

How would I collect 165 phones?

Where do I sign up?

Why does Hearts and Minds run this scheme?

2.  It raises funds for Hearts and Minds to go towards the building of a school in Manchester for children with autism:

Hearts and Minds also runs a Facebook community for families affected by autism:
