In 2012, through the generous donations of Wyndham Worldwide, the James Pickle Foundation, Pimco, and Heather Nix of Washington State, AutismCares was able to award 831 iPads to families across the United States.
We received over 10,000 applications, and with the help of a volunteer review committee, chose the lucky families to receive an iPad for their loved ones with autism.
In addition to the iPad, each family was given a collection of free apps and promo codes donated by the generous folks at BrainParade.
We have heard wonderful things from the families about what a positive impact the iPads have had and how much the devices have changed their lives.
We've put together a slide show filled with their stories along with some great pictures.
