Please help us with our son Andrew's Road to Recovery from Autism. We are raising money to buy hin an iPad so he can communicate with us.

Our son Andrew was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder when he was almost 5 years old after being mis-diagnosed when he was 3 with only a learning disability. In addition to ASD he has low muscle tone and sensory processing disorder. At the time of his diagnosis he had very little eye contact, would never respond to his name, had no interest in other children, didn’t have any imaginative play, didn’t talk, wave, point or kiss. Where did our little boy go? He had all of the right developmental milestones when he was a baby, but somewhere along the way we lost him.

With all of Andrew’s therapies, all organic gluten free/casein free diet, detoxing of heavy metals, vitamins and supplements, doctor visits and prescriptions, the bills add up really fast. I am a mother on a mission to heal my son and I’ll do anything possible to help him. I have watched him in Speech Therapy work on an iPad and I know that this is the assistive device that can help him Learn and Communicate with us. We now need the help of a community to make a difference.

With the generosity of others we hope to raise enough money to purchase an iPad for Andrew and then to start ABA therapy. We KNOW that Autism can be healed. We also know that Andrew will always have Autism, but we can bring him back to as close to “normal” as we can with your help.
