Boston was diagnosed with autism and has not used any words for communication. His ABA Therapist has been working with him using the Touchchat app on her iPad and he is responding really well to it!

His parents have tried using pictures to help him communicate at home, but is just isn’t working as well as Touchchat and they simply can’t afford a device at this time. Their hope is that he continues to understand the pictures on the app and can translate that understanding into speech. The beauty of Touchchat is, even when speech begins to develop, the app is beneficial in adding new words.

All they really want is to know what Boston wants and needs!

Variety KC partners believe every child should have a voice and a way to be heard. Boston received his device, but there are so many more kiddos who need them. Can you help?  Donate today at
