As parents it is hard to ask for help but sometime you just can't do it alone.. Wyatt needs help having his Voice Heard!

Dear Friends & Family

Our youngest son Wyatt is 4 years old and Autistic. He has been receiving special education, and speech services since he was 18 months old.
Wyatt is such a sweet and lovable boy.We are so proud of all the progress he has made.However Wyatt cannot talk. As parents it is so heartbreaking to see all he has to ofter yet cant communicate to us.
Through suggestions from Wyatt's team of teacher's we heard about the advances the Apple Ipad is making with Autistic children. The Ipad is giving Autistic children a voice. They have developed many educational and communication programs / apps just for Autistic children. We tried a program out on the Ipod touch and Success!!! Wyatt showed us he could spell simple words. We were so impressed. The buttons and the screen were hard for him to activate because its so small. The Ipad is very simple for Kids to use and provides a bigger screen,etc.
To purchase the Apple Ipad and educational apps for Autistim is very costly.
Through the HollyRod Foudation for Autistic Children we learned about the GiveForward program. Family and Friends can make donations just for Wyatt. We can purchase the apple Ipad and appropriate apps or any other needs wyatt may have with the donations at a discount through The Ipad for Autistic children program.
If you would like to donate and help Wyatt "find his Voice" and be able to communicate it.
Thank you so much for helping us to help our son.
