All money donated will go to the purchase of an iPad2 that Peyton will use to further his communication and motor skills in therapy.

As many of you know our 4 year old son Peyton is Autistic. He has many great abilities and a few weaknesses. Two of his major hang ups are with communication and every day motor skills. They are starting to use the iPad for therapy with Autistic children. Everyone has been raving about how much of an improvement they have seen in their children when they started using the pad. The pad has many apps designed to teach children with Autism. Holly Robinson Pete talked about the power of the pad and also these sites to help families raise the funds to purchase them. Since Peyton has always been a technology buff and learns best when instructed by the tv or computer I thought this iPad could be the tool we are looking for to help teach him to communicate. We have tried doing activities with Peyton on the regular computer, but his motor skills are not good enough to navigate the activities. I recently got a touch screen Android phone and Peyton can navigate it perfectly with his finger. So I am going to give it a whirl. We and The P would greatly appreciate any help you could give us. I know 900.00 may not seem like a lot, but it is an added expense we just cant swing at this moment in time. Please do not feel obligated to donate just because I sent this to you. I am simply sending it to everyone........the more people who see it, the more money we have a chance to raise.
