“My son Leo’s life was transformed when a five-dollar raffle ticket turned into a brand-new iPad,” Shannon Des Roches Rosa reports for BlogHer.

“I’m not exaggerating,” Des Roches Rosa reports. “Before the iPad, Leo’s autism made him dependent on others for entertainment, play, learning, and communication. With the iPad, Leo electrifies the air around him with independence and daily new skills. People who know Leo are amazed when they see this new boy rocking that iPad.”

Des Roches Rosa reports, “I’m impressed, too, especially when our aggressively food-obsessed boy chooses to play with his iPad rather than eat. I don’t usually dabble in miracle-speak, but I may erect a tiny altar to Steve Jobs in the corner of our living room.”
