The family and friends of Leah TenBrink are uniting to help raise money to give Leah a voice through an iPad. Please show your support!

Leah was diagnosed with autism when she was 18 months old. She had no eye contact, did not play appropriately and did not speak. She is now a beautiful 5 year old little girl with so much to say but no way to get those words out. I see it in her face, I hear it in her screams, I feel her pain deep in my soul and want so badly to give her a voice. The research is out there to support the iPad and the app Proloquo2go for children who are non verbal. I have seen this child use my iPhone better than I can . She loves the autism apps I have on my phone and she even searched Youtube for some of her favorite videos! The cost of raising a child on the spectrum is astronomical and for us, we are raising two children on the spectrum. However, Leah is the one without a voice and she is the one that needs technology to help bring out what I already know is there. I need your help friends....This fundraiser is for an iPad for Leah, the Proloquo2go app and a speech language pathologist trainer to help teach Leah how to use the app. Any amount you can give would be appreciated. I long for the day that I hear my sweet baby girl say, "Mom I love you". YOU can make a difference in Leah's life and we will be forever grateful.
