Many of you may, or may not, know that my daughter is autistic. Amelia was diagnosed at 18 months and is non-verbal. She has speech and occupational therapy through school and at home. Her therapists use the ipad during therapy which is a more cost effective device for aumentative comminucation than the older Dynavox systems. Amelia's response and growth to therapy using the ipad has been tremendous! Unfortunatly, I am unable to continue her therapy at home because we do not own and ipad. The school does not allow the ipad to go home with Amelia, because the speech therapist only has one ipad that she uses with her other disabled clients. Her Therapist cannot "loan" us her ipad for the same reason. Amelia's insurance will not cover the cost of the ipad, even though they recognize the benefits for children with autism. So, I am taking matters into my own hands to raise enough money to purchase an ipad and the Proloquo2go app that Amelia's therapists use to continue her therapy at home, because honestly, 2 times a week just isn't enough, but that's all insurance will cover. The ipad will cost $599.99 and the Proloquo app is $219.99. The other $200 will be used to purchase more apps made specifically for autistic children and a hardy protective case. Please give any amount you can and help Amelia continue her therapy so she can find her voice!
