Meet the Kids: Lydia


Five-year-old Lydia is mostly non-verbal. Diagnosed on the Autism spectrum with global developmental delays, Lydia communicates using a couple words or partial words. As Lydia grows, her need to communicate grows with her. At age 5, she is greatly in need of special apps and an iPad. It is absolutely amazing how children like Lydia respond and learn through technology like this.

Variety donors and partners understand the world this technology opens up for kids like Lydia and are making sure she gets what she needs. Find out how you can join Variety’s supporters to help more children “speak” – visit
