This is the Max Norris iPad fund. He will use his iPad to finally tell the world what is on his mind!

My son Max is a wonderful 12 year old boy with autism. He is nonverbal and is feeling more frustrated daily trying to tell us what he needs. The way we communicate now is I tap my chin and say things and when I get it right he takes my hand off my chin. It really is not a great method. I think alot of times he just gives up. He desperately needs a communication device. The iPad has a number of wonderful apps for nonverbal communication that has helped many autistic children. Max has been evaluated by a speech therapist who believes that the iPad would be perfect for him. The very first time he used one during his evaluation he told us his twin brothers name ,his baby sisters name and his age!I did not even know he knew those things! I would love to hear Max's voice!
