Our children have alot to say, just because they can't speak, doesn't mean they don't have anything to say Please help if you can.

We would like to purchase a few things for safety and learning purposes for our children Jacob (3yrs) and Leyna (1yr) Both children have been diagnosed with Autism, and do not speak, therefore they have no way to communicate their needs and wants, or to tell us simple things such as "I'm hungry", or "I'm sick". Every day is a guessing game, though we have seen some improvement since Jacob started his therapy, he is still unable to speak. Hopefully Leyna will start her therapy soon, but there is a long list of children waiting for therapy as well. We have been told that therapy may start for her within 12 - 14 months. The items we would like to purchase for them are an ipad, and a fence for our yard. There are several "apps" for the ipad that will aid them in learning to speak. One of Jacob's therapists has one, he loves working on it and seems to be making more sounds. But he only has access to it for a couple of hours a week. It would be great to have one of his own so that he and Leyna can learn to speak sooner. We would also like to purchase a fence for our yard as we have 2 creeks near our property. The leading cause of death for autistic children is wandering, and drowning, so a fence is definitely needed. Please let all of your friends and family know about Jacob & Leyna's fundraiser so that they may get what they deserve......basic speech and above all, safety. Thank you in advance for taking the time to read this, and most of all for giving. God bless everyone, especially the children.
