My family is trying to raise money for our autistic son, Dominic, who would extremely benefit from an IPAD for his learning needs

I watched as my 3 year old son play on his therapists Iphone. He flipped though applications like a pro, found the one that he loved and started playing. His smiles and laughter were contagious, and as I stood watching in awe I knew an IPAD was a must for my son. I diligently searched the internet only to be disappointed at the cost of even a used one, yet I kNOW he will blossom with all the applications that will help him in his learning process.

My son was diagnosed at the age of 2 with autism. He was non verbal at the time of his diagnosis. Thanks to assistance from insurance and waiver program, I immediately got him into intense 1:1 therapy for 30hrs/week. The progress he is making is wonderful and I was moved to tears the first time he said mama. Words seem to come more readily to him now, but I can see areas he still needs much assistance.

It has been proven that IPADS work wonders with children on the autism spectrum and I want so badly to provide everything to my son that will help him to advance and succeed.
