Jeremiah is an outgoing despite being non-verbal. He was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at age two and autism at age five – and yet, his single mom says she was truly blessed with a precious angel! Today, her greatest wish is 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.
