Trying to raise funds for a iPad for our son.

We are creating this fundraiser page for our son Carson. He has struggled with communicating for awhile now, and as hard as it is on his father and I seeing him be so frustrated because he can not tell us what he wants or needs, i know it is all the more frustrating for him. We are now having behavioral issues because of the frustration he has. He is currently in Speech therapy twice a week and also has Early Intervention once a week that comes to our home. He is doing some sign language and shaking his head no/yes for us now. He will babble sometimes with mostly the "Ba" or "Ma" sounds but mostly he just makes his sound..the one we have became all too familiar with. (If you know Carson you know what i'm talking about)
He's even said J.J. once, but just like in the past once we hear something new it is quickly gone. We have been told he may be diagnosed with having Apraxia of Speech.
We have had a couple people recommend using a Ipad to help him better communicate, both at home and in therapy. However we can not afford one of these wonderful devices on our own.
This is where we could use your help. Recently, there's been a lot of buzz about how iPad technology helps those with different special needs.
We would love to be able to give this to Carson. It would make the world of difference to him and our family. The money raised would purchase the iPad and we could cover the warranty, case and apps.

Thanks to everyone that is making this possible. We are truly grateful.
