About Danny’s Wish

The mission of Danny’s Wish is to provide life enhancing resources to families of children with autism and autism related spectrum disorders

The Danny’s Wish iPads for Autism Campaign provides free iPads to families of nonverbal children with Autism. Through the efforts and support of friends and family like you, Danny’s Wish has already provided thousands and thousands of iPads to children, providing the gift of speech and communication.

These children affected lack the ability to communicate simple wants and needs. Ask any parent of a child who cannot communicate and you will understand how ultimately frustrating and disheartening it can be. Can you imagine what it would be like to hear your own child cry and not know why, or see the pain and frustration on their faces because they cannot communicate with you?

The applications available on the iPad give these children the ability to communicate with friends and families, some for the first time.

Our Ipad for Autism campaign has become the primary focus of Danny’s Wish. Your generosity and support provides a needy child and their family with the gift of speech and communication.
