An Oklahoma mother is asking for help after her autistic son's iPad is stolen.

Alisa Jamerson is the mother to 9-year-old, Justice. Justice has severe non-verbal autism, according to a GoFundMe page.

With the help of Ramsey Therapy Group and Oklahoma Able Tech, Justice received an iPad that allows him to communicate with his family, teachers and therapists.

Through the use of this iPad, Justice has been able to let me know when he is ready to eat, go to bed, name his colors and shapes, etc. He has even become more verbal as he learned new words through this device!

On July 7, Jamerson said she arrived home to find it had been broken into. Several items were stolen, including Justice's iPad and other devices that helped him communicate.

With his iPad gone, Justice lost his voice, his ability to communicate. So, Jamerson set up a GoFundMe to help Justice get a new iPad, to get his voice back.

"This iPad would be used to replace the one that was stolen and give him his "voice" back so that he can have the opportunity that each one of us has to express ourselves," said Jamerson.
