The Autism Society of Northern Virginia build community for over 5,000 families through advocacy, education, and support. One of their most popular programs, the assistive technology program, provides tablets and training to families to be used as assistive technology. Tablets are portable, easy to use, with plenty of communication tools that can be a lifesaver for nonverbal children and adults.

Anna’s son Josh, who received a tablet from the Autism Society of Northern Virginia, is very attached to his tablet and uses it to communicate and bond with other people. Anna was excited to see Josh’s verbal communication abilities grow as he used his communication apps on his tablet, and relieved that when Josh struggled to speak, he could use his tablet to communicate critical information, such as that we has hungry or in pain. Designers Insurance Agency is raising funds to help provide these technological tablets to other children like Josh in the area. The new fundraising page can be accessed here:

According to Wally Arcayan, the principal at Designers Insurance Agency, with the support of Anna and ASNV, Josh is thriving. Josh recently received the Student of the Quarter award in his class and consistently making Honor Roll at his school. “We can only imagine how scary it is for Anna to face judgment, stares and outright hostility from people who didn’t understand Josh’s struggles. The ASNV has provided this family not only with a wonderful assistive technology program, but also with support and guidance to help them with their every day challenges.”

The agency will donate $10 to the cause for each person recommended to the agency for a quote – no purchase necessary. Anyone willing to help this campaign can recommend someone in need of an insurance evaluation for their auto, home, life, and more.
