AUSTIN, Texas — Jaime Morin, 9, was diagnosed with autism at age 2 and has been nonverbal his whole life. When the therapy he was receiving at school became insufficient, his mother, Lupe Santander, sent him to Big Sky Pediatric Therapy, where he went for speech and occupational therapy once a week. It was there that they heard of Zach’s Voice, a nonprofit group that provides iPads to autistic children with communication deficiencies.

“He can say exactly what he wants with the iPad,” says Santander. “When he first figured it out, the look on his face was priceless. We could finally understand him, we didn’t have to say ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ when he pointed to things.”
