I am Robyn, a single mom of a wonderful loving 16 year old son D Andre! He has a diagnosis of moderate mental retardation lower level autism JRA Asthma Allergies and more! It has not been easy at all for us.

Linking up with The Autism Disorder Foundation has given me hope and a smile on my sons face.

Being a recepiant of this ipad confirmed that we do matter. It is a wonderful way to enhance the communication of the children, it also helps the parents to get at least five minutes of down time.

I will be forever grateful for this AMAZING gift!

Thank you Michael &Jan and the donors who made this possible!

During my first year of teaching SPED students with Autism and learning disabilities I was elated to find out about ASDF from my assistant who has a child with Autism at home. She encouraged me to apply since your organization has helped her son already.
My students are overjoyed and already benefiting from the numerous apps available. These apps are allowing the students to use reading programs and math matters that aren't offered free of charge on line.
We can't thank you enough!!!

Our heartfelt thanks from,
Cherilyn Robinson and Students

We wanted to give a sincere thank you for my son, Branson's, opportunity to have an iPad. Having an iPad will enable him to develop better speech/communication, increase academic skills, and allow his therapists to utilize this great visual during therapy. Thank you! Thank you! God Bless each of you! You made our journey through autism a little bit easier!

I just want to thank you for your generosity by helping my daughter who is autistic get a ipad. This will increase her learning and development greatly. The best thing about it is she also gets to bring it home so we can do things together on it. Thank you to her teacher Mrs. Brewer at Drew Transition Center for the hard work she put into obtaining information about these programs!

I am a teacher and my students were in need of Ipads to communicate effectively at home and in the classroom. I wrote the ASD Foundation to see if they could help. All 8 of my students received Ipad minis to have at home. I really appreciate this foundation and its donors for caring for students with ASD.

With my daughter having been misdiagnosed for most of her life, there was no end to the horror stories as we attempted to navigate the public school system. She was not correctly diagnosed with Asperger's until she was 21. And unbelievably, at this time she incurred a medical crisis which is ongoing and without resolution. Simultaneously she returned to school at the local community college to begin the journey to attain her life goal of earning a PhD in biology. Unfortunately after 5 years of Herculean effort, she was still unable to complete her two years at this level. Because she is the expert chameleon, her disability remains hidden to neuro-typicals and even to those who work in access/disability resource centers, who refuse to grant the much needed accommodations due to her better than 4 point GPA. No one sees the enormous costs she has to pay just to get through one class. Consequently, this brilliant young woman is in a holding pattern attempting to make this right not only for her but other Aspie's who have given up their own dreams of a college education. As we have lived in poverty all her life, we are unable to afford the fun things in life and pretty much live in survival mode. Her case manager contacted ASDF with a request for funding for riding lessons for her as she used to ride and loves animals more than people. These lessons are the only thing she looks forward to every week in her very packed schedule and the instructor enjoys Alex as much as Alex enjoys being there with her. This has been such a boon to her and we are so grateful that ASDF has provided this. We cannot thank them enough.
