I still remember those final moments before Autism stole my son's voice.  He knew before we could even comprehend that his words were fading and he was afraid. In the quiet hours of the night he would call out, "A, B, C, D.....A, B, C, D", in a panicked two year old voice, "A, B, C, D....A, B, C, D", until he fell asleep.  The silence that followed was abrupt. Autism is like that, a slow fade followed by the impact of a Mack truck. You don't even see it coming. 

For nine years Kenny has lived in silence with nothing more than a few sounds and his closed fists to get his point across. It's him against the world. It's an angry existence full of misunderstanding and anguish. He deserves more. He should be able to complain of a toothache or express a fear of monsters under his bed. He should be able to tell Santa what he wants for Christmas, he should be able to order his cheeseburger without onions! He should be able to tell his mom that he loves her.....

Kenny needs a chance to be heard! Thanks to advances in electronics and ever-improving Apps we now have a way to help him. The App he needs is called, Proloquo2go, it is only compatible with Apple i-pad products. This app is an easy to use, fast and portable way for Kenny to communicate, a way that everyone around him can understand. The device will be for communication only and he will be the only one using it. It will be his voice. Will you help Kenny gain a voice? We know that he has a lot to say and we can't wait to hear every word.

Thank you,

The Gagnon Family
