iPad App Giveaway to Raise Awareness for Autism and Special Needs

Previously, I wrote an article guiding parents towards the best iPad apps for expressive language that I discovered during the course of doing some research.

Today, while browsing my same source for that article, I discovered that on Saturday, June 11, 2011, beginning at 9 a.m. EDT, there will be an "App Party" at http://www.facebook.com/a4cwsn. Gary James, an app researcher and father of two children with autism, has persuaded leading developers to donate over 3,000 apps to special needs families. James is also personally donating up to ten iPads that will be given away over the weekend as well.

This philanthropic event is designed to generate awareness of the multitude of apps available to families and educators and foster communication between developers and the people they serve. Seven iPads will also be randomly given away through a raffle-like event to individuals who have donated to the cause. Additionally, several other iPads and all apps will be given away unconditionally to those who simply join the Facebook page and participate virtually in the event.

James has emphasized that this is not a fundraising or revenue-generating event and has organized this strictly for autism and special needs awareness.

If you’re up on Saturday morning and at your computer, it might be worth checking out.
