The family of a little girl unable to walk or talk have launched an £11,000 fundraising campaign to help her communicate for the first time.
Taylor Smith, seven, suffers from Rett syndrome, a severe and lifelong neurological disorder.
It leaves her unable to walk, talk or feed herself and she requires around-the-clock care.
She also suffers from epilepsy, anxiety and apraxia – the inability to move normally.
Her mother, Stevie Close, and stepdad Lee are trying to raise £11,000 to buy her a Tobii – a computer controlled by eye movement.
