Carson is autistic and does not verbally communicate. He requires a device to express his needs and wants, as well as feelings such as anger, pain or joy. Carson could only communicate with others via an iPad and software specialized in assisting autistic individuals with communication and expression.
Carson’s parents work full-time as well as care for Carson and his two siblings, including an autistic brother. Psychiatric appointments, medications, special services and general care have placed the family under financial strain. HCCI providing Carson with the iPad and required software has helped him significantly and made it significantly easier to communicate with his family and friends.
