As CEO of Autism Pensacola, I see many parents of children with autism every day. Often their child is with them. One thing that has changed over the past few years is how often that child has an iPad with them when they stop by our office. Parents rely on iPads to engage children who would otherwise make it impossible to run errands or to sit through a training. Children are able to work on learning apps they think are fun games, watch favorite movies and even create artwork on their iPads. Some do use them as communication devices but they are also much more. They are peace and quiet on a long car trip. They are something familiar and reliable on a chaotic day. They are engaging learning tools.
Your support of Give kids a voice has provided iPads for40 children over the past 4 years. Autism Pensacola has an application process to ensure the neediest families get these iPads-Families who would not have access to all the benefits of an iPad if it weren't for the generosity of donors like you. Thank you for continuing to provide so much through this electronicdevice. Because of you, many families have more tools at their fingertips. Thank you for making a difference!
