I have received a tablet for my special needs daughter from ERA. My daughter is looking forward to watching her favourite shows on the tablet. It will be especially useful for her to use the tablet with her noise cancelling headphones to help her stay focused. Thank you so much ERA, you’re providing a wonderful service to the community.
