The family and friends of Gavin Francis are uniting to raise money to help purchase an ipad and give him a voice , please show your support!

Gavin was diagnosed with Autism and placed on the autism spectrum when he was three years old. I remeber thinking i was going to wake up from the nightmare , but i never did. Gavin is considered to be high functioning and is pretty independent. However he is minimally verbal and has a vocabulary of about 35 words that he uses whenever he wants to. Gavin is very smart and a quick learner he has mastered the PECS program (picture exchange for communication)and communicates his wants and needs by PECS at home and at school. I am trying every avenue i can to get Gavin an ipad that he can use to communicate with people that are verbal and to help teach him to use him voice. I would give anything in the world to have a small conversation with my son 5-10 words, its my dream to know what he thinks and wants and feels and i know someday he will be able to make that happen, but until then i am trying to get gavin an ipad to help with his speech.
