Autism took her voice, and we are looking to give it back to her.

After waiting almost ten years to have a baby girl, I was so blessed when she arrived! My beautiful daughter was born perfect. Around the age of 16 months though, we began to lose her. Not on a physical level, but emotionally. She went from talking quite a bit for her age, to a silent shadow. For four months, we never heard anything from her unless it was the sound of her crying. It took a very long time to receive the devistaing diagnosis of Autism.
We are doing everything we can possibly do for her on a medical level. We have been doing Biomed for two years, which has taken all of our money, and continues to do to so. While we have seen some wonderful things, her speach is still very limited. She will get very frustrated because we don't know what she wants, so she will bite herself and scream. As a mother, this is the worst part of Autism for me. I know she is angry or sad, but I have no idea why, and she can't tell me.
We are looking to raise the funds to get her an Ipad, as well as the apps for communication to help her.
