This is on behalf of my 12 year old Autistic Son Ethan, better known as "Lono". Lono is a non-verbal kid who is some cases is just like any 12 year old boy. He loves to eat, enjoys tv, and on occasion enjoys trips to McDonalds. Simply put for many years since being in the Department of Education he has been put through so many inconsistancies for his speech therapy. Poor kid, he doesn't know if he's coming or going! At this point I am asking the Department of Education to supply him with speech services with an augmentative device. Being so developmentally behind, the DOE appears to take the position that "Lono is not ever expected to talk , and his communication needs are already being met appropriately". Therefore, I am starting this petition in hopes of showing who ever will listen that my son deserves a chance. He deserves to be trained on a augmentative device, which is the easiest way to communicate, to be a part of this world, and to build confidence to go beyond his comfort zone. Please be a part of this petition if you love someone with Autism.
