This is my son Alex and he's autistic.

Today I was invited to his school because he was to recieve an award for his class. It isn't very often that we're able to celebrate how well he's doing. One of those reasons is because of the iPad that his teacher purchased for his class to use.
As I sat down with him and began to watch him interact with this product I was completely astounded! He knew how to navigate between the apps to find the right one to work with, I had never seen him work so calmly and focused. Before I knew it I was watching him easily sort small objects with the right colors as well as counting the objects quietly to himself.
As I left his school that day I had to take a moment in my car to cry tears of joy. Usually when people see Alex he's twirling something in his hands, flitting around, being loud or even trying to be rough. But with that wonderful little iPad I was able to sit down with my son and actually work on something with him, something I haven't been able to do with him in the six years he's been on this earth.
Thanks to that iPad at school my son can easily identify over ten colors, can count aloud to twenty and can recognize the numbers, knows his abc's and can identify most with help and his vocabulary has increased more than double this school year.

If all of our close friends and family only donate $5 we'll easily be able to buy an iPad for Alex's home use. With this iPad he has a better chance at an easier life. Please even if it's only a dollar any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

The money donated will go to covering the cost of the iPad, a protective case, a two year extended warranty and the last couple of dollars will go to pay for Alex's educational applications.
