This is the Javin Danilo Fund for Language. The funds raised will be used for Javin's speech evaluation and therapy costs this year.

Javin Danilo needs your help...
to get the speech therapy that will give him more language.

He tells me the most important words that a mother wants to hear from her son..."I love you." I'm lucky in that respect.

He's different from other typical seven-year-olds. Javin has autism.

He answers yes or no questions with mostly yes's even when the answer is no. ("Do you have siblings?" "Yes.") He "scripts," which means he repeats what he has watched on television to himself out loud. He exhibits echolalia, which is the meaningless repetition of another person's words, especially when he doesn't understand what you're telling him.

I could tell you more of what's on his speech evaluation but the most important part is this: I want to hear my son tell me what his day is like. I want him to tell me how it feels when he has a bad day or a good day. Simple as that.
