This is the "Joshua's Voice" Fund. The funds will be used for the purchase of an IPad and accessories need. Please show your support!

The friends and family of Joshua are trying to raise funds to purchase an IPad for him and his brother. Back in September of 2001, Joey, now 14 and Joshua, now 12 were both diagnosed with autism. Joey has communications skills but some things are still very difficult for him. Joshua, on the other hand is non-verbal and its almost impossible for him to communicate with anyone except his immediate family. With all the extra expenses associated with having children with autism brings, getting IPads for the boys just seems next to impossible without help. Everyday is a struggle, yet everyday I wait for Joshua to be able to say mom....and with the assistance of an IPad that just may be possible. There is a program for the IPad, the cost for that is $200 alone, but with it we can program the boys likes and wants with it, then with a simple click of a button the program will speak, allowing Joshua to have a voice.

Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers.
