FUNDED July 19 2019 – Thank You!
It is estimated that nearly 40% of individuals with an Autism Spectrum Disorder are non-verbal. Imagine just for a moment how it would feel to not be able to let those around you know how you feel, what you need, or what you want. The inability to effectively communicate the most basic of needs can be extremely frustrating and, in some cases, can even create serious safety risks for individuals who are non-verbal.
The National Autism Association’s Give A Voice program provides a tablet with an intuitive voice-output communication app to individuals with Autism who are non-verbal or minimally verbal. This communication app gives nonverbal children and young adults the ability to build phrases and sentences pictographically, which are then converted to audible speech. This app also teaches children with Autism how to read and write. This program has given these life-changing communication devices to nearly 300 individuals with Autism to date, and with your help we can give even more children the gift of communication!
Every bit helps! Your generous clicks today can help fund the cost of a tablet with a life-changing communication app for a non-verbal child with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
“The NAA Give a Voice program has enhanced Owen’s life beyond measure. While he is still limited in his verbal abilities, his access to communication has opened the world for him. Utilizing this tool has been life changing. Owen’s overall experience in this world has become a brighter one. With the ability to communicate, he is less frustrated and happier overall. There aren’t enough words to express the importance of what this program provides.”

“Thank you so much for the iPad with Avatalker! We use it in my home everyday…Joseph and Yansiel use the iPad program to improve their overall speech production and language skills. Joseph has elaborated his vocabulary usage and reading comprehension skills towards his educational goals. He is able to write complete sentences now, due to his usage of the Avatalker program. This has helped his quality of life for himself, while reducing his frustrations and anxiety. Yansiel, his brother with autism, has also benefited from sharing the iPad with Joseph to improve his communication skills as well. Thank you so much!!!!!”
