Dec 08, 2011 -- 4:44 pmIn 2010, HollyRod introduced the “Give the Gift of Voice” campaign to provide iPads to give a voice to those without. To date, HollyRod has given away more iPads for communication for Autism than any other organization. Over 100 individuals ranging in age from 3 to 32 across 27 states can now make their voice hear. It is our commitment to continue this program so that every individual with Autism has a voice.
50% of children with Autism have extreme difficulty learning to speak, 25% of them never will. While these individuals may not be able to speak, they have much to say. Traditional Alternative Communication Devices on average cost around $8000. With the introduction of Apple’s iPad along with specially designed communication “apps”, the ability to speak is far more accessible for so many ranging in total cost of about $1000.
