Help My Boys Not Hold Their Ears So Much
A little about Eric and Andy
Eric is 11 years old. He loves the computer, cars, school busses, and enjoys swimming, bowling, watching baseball, football and basketball games. While he is nonverbal he has made tremendous progress in his communication skills thanks to Rapid Prompting Method (RPM). This has made it possible for him to express his feelings and how smart he is. He is a mild mannered affectionate child but he does look after others , and protect his brother.
Andy is 7 years old. He also loves the computer. Other favorite activities include puzzles, playing outside, and bowling. He is also nonverbal but has made much progress with RPM. He is also a very smart, affectionate child and very active. He is not afraid to say what is on his mind whether it is through RPM or his facial expressions.
Both these boys have worked very hard in school, in home therapy and RPM and have come far. The last 3 years have been difficult for them with losing their dad, baby brother and grandfather. This therapy, along with the time away and having fun with friends and out in the community would be a great step in their progress. AIT will help them enjoy the activities they love even fuller, help them in school, be more comfortable in the community. We are thankful for all support in this effort.

I feel completely different. Before I didn't really notice all the sounds in the room. They were all together like one big noise. It was hard to hear talking and it was hard to focus. Now I hear every noise separately. I love it. I think I can go to school and do great now.
That alone tells me that there were positive changes from this process.
I want to thank everyone who has made this possible and for all prayers, love and support. I still do owe some money for the therapy so I am keeping this up, It was very worth it all. Anything and everything is appreciated. Thanks to everyone that have helped make this an awesome trip for my family.
