ICSA Software donated iPads to support children with autism
ICSA Software has recently donated iPads to children with autism as a part of our corporate social responsibility initiative to support Shaun Udal's efforts in raising the awareness of people suffering from autism and those connected to them.
Mike Evans, the Group CEO at ICSA Software commented: "ICSA's involvement in the community is a crucial element of our corporate culture. I met Shaun Udal, the England cricket legend and a patron of the Hampshire Autistic Society at a networking event last month. He has been actively involved in supporting the Society since his son Jack has been diagnosed with autism. He made me aware of the everyday struggles children and parents have and how devices such as an Apple iPad can help them progress with their social skills. "
Shaun Udal explained: "Being a patron of the Hampshire Autistic Society is something very close to my heart. It's devastating news for any parent but we're coming to terms with it. It's hard work, but Jack is adorable and you've just got to be there for him. I've been trying to raise awareness of autism and support the efforts of the Autistic Society as well as the Maple Ridge School in Basingstoke that provides education for children with moderate learning difficulties. Mike has agreed to support us by donating iPads to my son and another pupil and I am extremely grateful for his contribution."
