Mother sets out to buy iPads for other autistic children

Mother sets out to buy iPads for other autistic children

FRED ZWICKY/JOURNAL STAR Grady Oathout, 3, embraces his mom, Tara, as they interact together on an iPad. Tara says her son, who has autism, was trapped in a world to himself, unable to communicate his desires and remote from his parents. "With the iPad, we've learned just how amazing he truly is. He reaches out to us and now he can tell us what he wants and how it feels." Tara has founded a group called Loud Mommy Ministries to get iPads into the hands of other parents. Tara wrote: "We love our child with every fiber of our beings, hence why we are willing to do anything and everything we can do to be advocates on their behalf. To be their voice. To be a Loud Mommy."
