The funds raised here will be used only to purchase an iPad for Jessica who is a 14 and growing up with autism.

Jessica is my 14 year old daughter diagnosed with autism at the moderate/severe level when she was 2 years old. She is verbal but has always struggled with communication because of the disorder. Over the years we have worked with several speech pathologists and used various communication systems to improve her deficits but with each one yielding less than outstanding results for our goals. Like many other persons with autism, visuals are of the utmost importance and this device is full of such that she can easily implement in the least invasive way for her environment.

Currently, we are a homeschool family (a single mom and another child with dyslexia) which is a situation that depletes many of our extra funds to use for assistive technology and other supports. We are asking all of the kind people out there to donate to this fund so that I may buy an iPad to give Jessica access to the apps available that have helped so many others with autism.

Please share with everyone that you know.
