This is the Team Jonas iPad Fund. The funds raised will be used to purchase Jonas an iPad 2 and load it with apps for autistic children.

I am the lucky mother of 3 amazing children (one who has autism). My days are filled with the duties of being Mama, a teacher, a therapist, a kisser of boo-boos and not-so-gourmet chef. I love my family and would do anything for them. That is why I am creating this page. My youngest son, Jonas, has made incredible strides in his growth and development, and I couldn't be prouder for all that he has already accomplished in his short 4 years with the challenges of autism upon his plate. As his Mama, it is my life's work to give him the tools that he needs to navigate our neuro-typical world. Those tools are acquired through intense speech therapy, OT, PT, schooling, love and sooo much patience. Most recently Jonas has shown a particular affinity for technology and has made gains in language/speech through the use of an iPod Touch that we purchased for him a year ago. That device taught him to speak. And now with the development of the iPad and the amazing aps available for children with autism a new hope for interaction and growth has emerged. But, we need your help to get that iPad in his hands. Raising 3 children is costly. Raising 3 children on 1 income because your youngest child requires more than any babysitter or daycare can possibly offer him, creates an even more tricky situation financially. That is why I've created this page. It is my hope that a few dollars at a time, we will be able to raise the $600 necessary to purchase an iPad 2 and load it with apps that will further help Jonas develop. Please contribute as much as you can. Thank you!
