The email below is for families who have children with autism who have
limited or no verbal language skills. The Holly Rod Foundation is
donating iPads to such families! There is a financial eligibility
requirement but it's generous. A professional on the child's team
(teacher, doctor, or speech therapist) must take responsibility for the
gift card that downloads the applications. Applications are due by
December 31 but the earlier you apply, the more likely you will receive
an iPad, if I am reading the details correctly.
Please see the email below. To download the information and application
form, click on the little round "go" button next to "Holiday 2010 iPad
Application" at bottom of the webpage
Please forward this email to other families in your networks!
