Any Help would be so greatly appreciated. The Family of Jacob Nichols

My son, Jacob, was diagnosed with Aspergers, High Functioning Autism, Anxiety, ADD and ODD, last March 2011. What is Aspergers/Autism, one might ask. Imagine being stuck in a world of your own, not being able to communicate effectively with others on your emotions or feelings, taking EVERYTHING literally, not understanding a simple joke or idiom (things most take for granted), being extremely anxious and nervous around people you don't know well, afraid to look someone in the face/eyes.....that is just a brief description of the challenges Jacob faces everyday.
We recently became aware that Apple's Ipad has many Apps that will help him to be able to communicate more effectively with us, his teachers and peers.
As some of you know, I have not been working since March. I have my own health issues going on, but that is not for here. As if my not working were not enough, Jim, my husband has been laid off and on since April. We are having a difficult time, but keeping the faith.
I am starting this fundraiser to help raise the needed funds for an Ipad and a few apps for Jacob. Jacob is not our only 'Special Needs" child, his younger brother Matthew was diagnosed with mood disorder, ADHD and ODD. We are currently in the process of having him further tested, as his new doctor feels he may have a form of Autism as well.
