My wife and I are trying are hardest to get our son, Tyler, a Dynovox Maestro... You can google Dynovox to see the item we need and thanks.

Hello friends and everyone that reads, My name is Justin Jones. I live in Clarksville, TN. I started looking around for a website that might help my son get the education he needs to better his cummunication. And cummunication is the key for any Autistic child.

Lets start at the beginning. My son was born April 28, 2008. Approximately 5 weeks early. After he was born he had all the normal problems for a premature infant. He was taken from our local hospital to a more knowledgable hospital for more knowledgable help. 3 days later and he was home. I noticed his forehead sticking out about a week after he was home and took him to the doctor. His doctor told us he had Metopic Craniostenosis. 4 months later he had a major and extensive craino surgery. His outcome was a miracle. He came home 3 weeks later. Once he healed up, we trained him like any other child. We started noticing some delays such as motor and speech issues.

We took him to the doctor again and then the testing began. After 9 month he was diagnosed with ASD or Autistic Spectrum Disorder. After his diagnoses, he went in for his second surgery on his eyes and the third surgery.

Now he is almost 3 years old and doing good. His autism is taking the best of him and us. He cannot communicate at all and his motor functions arent working in his favor. His major need is a Dynovox. This device is specially made for autistic children. This is an expensive item and we cannot pay for it, nor will his insurance.

So we and my son ask for help. Thanks and God Speed
