Help Ethan overcome his ASD social deficits using iPad apps specifically designed to help teach subtle social rules we all take for granted.

My son is 8 years old and diagnosed with ASD. He is an extremely bright and loving child, but has difficulty picking up on social cues. I have done a lot of research and I was amazed at the social building skills applications available for the iPad! Ethan would benefit greatly from these applications, and with hard work and dedication, I know Ethan has the ability to develop the necessary social skills to live a happy and fully productive life!

Ethan is already able to excel at electronic games, something he finds fascinating. Along with the special services he is receiving from the school as well as outside therapy, I feel that he would benefit from the special ed apps that have been designed for the iPad. I've found research to support this idea and feel it is a good addition to the treatments we are providing for him. Since the purchase of an iPad is not covered by medical insurance, I'm asking you to do what you can to help me get this learning tool for my son.

Our family's goal is $650 to purchase the newer version of the I pad, which allows more applications to be used, and the ability to create social stories, which is something that will help Ethan prepare for transition, as well as a protective case, and start up applications.
