Meet the Kids: Jeremiah

Jeremiah

Jeremiah is an outgoing, nine-year-old, nonverbal, autistic child. He was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at age two and autism at age five. His single mom says she was truly blessed with a precious angel, but her greatest wish was for him to communicate. Variety granted that wish and gave Jeremiah an iPad of his own. Now instead of tugging on his mom and trying to indicate what he needs, Jeremiah can actually ask for what he wants and needs. Jeremiah has always been a pretty happy fellow and doesn’t truly realize that he has different needs than most. Now, with the help of a communication device, his world has gotten even happier, less frustrating, and more rewarding. Please help Variety help other kids like Jeremiah to Be Active, Be Social and Belong—email varietykc@gmail.com.
