I cried when I read this this story online and watched the video.
On July 4, 2010, 9 year old severe Nonverbal Autism boy Sheamus Jones had his communication device, a “Mini-Merc” stolen. It was left in the family car while they were watching fireworks. The car was broken into and the “Mini-Merc” was stolen.
Communication devices are extremely expensive. It can take years to get one. I’ve been waiting almost two years for one for my nonverbal son. The family doesn’t care about pressing charges, they just want it returned. My heart goes out to this little boy. He has lost his voice. I wish I could help this family. This just breaks my heart.
