The Autism Cares Foundation (ACF) launched the nation’s first innovative iPad program, which builds on each child’s interests by toggling between teaching opportunities and motivating interests.
The iPad program offers participants an alternative way to communicate and teaches how to use several applications that will allow people with autism to flourish in tremendous ways.
Through this program, ACF is providing individuals with autism the opportunity to communicate, gain independence, improve daily life skills and so much more. Most importantly, the iPad gives those without a voice the chance to be heard.
The Autism Cares Foundation (ACF) differentiates itself from other organizations raising funds for autism that directly benefit the children and young adults afflicted with autism, helping to improve their life experiences today.
Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) affect 1 in 110 children and 1 in 70 boys. More children will be diagnosed with autism this year than with AIDS, diabetes and cancer combined. It is the fastest-growing serious developmental disability in the US. There is no cure for ASD, but there are help and resources.
This program, as with all other activities offered by ACF, is free to participating families.
