My son, Amir, is autistic and I am always blown away at how hard he and other children with special needs work as well as how time and money intensive many of their needs are. Therefore, I jumped at the chance to make life a little bit easier for a struggling family. Some things to consider:
- an iPad can mean the difference between communication and silence.
- therapies can mean the difference between independence and a life time of dependence.
- respite care in the form of a night out can give just enough of a break to allow a family to survive the challenges of raising a kid that requires intensive around the clock supervision.
In this spirit, please give whatever you can and if you can't give in the form of money, I will gladly take your love and support as I tackle 26.2 in April. It's a tough undertaking but these kids fight each and every hour - I can fight for a mere five. Help me do this friends!
