Ann Gibbons, known locally as Philip’s mom, is Autism Speaks’ Senior Regional Director for the Southeast. She writes us from her office in Washington, DC.
In October, I received an email from Stephen Niman at 11th Hour Search, Inc., a veteran-owned small business in northern Virginia. Stephen and his colleagues had purchased and gift-wrapped 18 iPads. He asked me if he could drop them off at my office so I could re-distribute them to autistic children in the military families living and working in northern Virginia.
