Autism Pensacola is so excited to have reached our goal to be a partner of GlobalGiving.  Thank you so much for your generous donation that helped make this possible.  

iPads for Autism is ready to provide iPads to families who are enrolled in our Parent Empowerment Program.  We began our first class on February 5  with 15 families.  These parents are already telling us great things.  Jenn said, ' Tonight's PEP class completely changed my entire thinking when it comes to working with my son regarding his communication. What has caused me YEARS of tears and worry was reduced in a simple 2 hour class which provided me not only hope but actual SOLUTIONS. I wish I had been able to take this class years ago. This will help me feel some sense of control again.'  These parents are learning techniques to work with their children using the iPads and will be eligible to apply for financial support to obtain an iPad at the end of the class in April.

Thank you again for your donation and for making a difference to the families we serve! I look forward to writing to you again soon with more information on how this program is changing the lives of those with autism.  Thank you!!!
