Ep 12: Gary James Pt 2 – A4CWSN, Autism and Being a Stay-At-Home Dad
Jun 17 15
Gary James is a legend in the special needs community for his selfless mission to help out other special needs families and their children in every way possible by providing free iPads, giving away iTunes gift cards, apps, etc. His own website App For Children With Special Needs or A4, is the gold standard for parents, therapists and educators alike to go to look for the latest in apps and app reviews for the special needs community. His A4 Facebook community is a force of 25,000+ loyal followers and a force to be reckoned with when it comes to a supportive community. The A4 community is based on helping each other out and supporting Garys mission of being able to provide as many iPads and apps to special needs kids around the world. Gary started A4CWSN because his own son (Benjamin who is 10 and is autistic) wanted to find the best apps available that could help him learn and grow.
4 Years later, Gary has been able to help over 270 children around the world to get an iPad and has given away thousands of apps to help children with special needs. In his latest campaign, he is looking to provide another 50 iPads to those who need them as well as his new idea for an iPad loaner campaign. Listen to Gary and I get our TMI on about A4CWSNs new campaigns, discuss the challenges and rewards of being a stay-at-home dad to his 5 kids. Youll get to know Gary personally beyond just being the force behind A4. Not to mention, some very amusing Dad stories. Enjoy.
It makes all of the effort, all of the hoping and praying that they’re going to like spinach worth it when they actually like it. I mean its just crazy.
I need that two hours of nobody’s asking me any questions, Im not reading any emails, the phone isn’t ringing, the computer is turned off, everybody else is sleeping and I have nothing to do apart from drinking my tea and watching the news. That’s it. There’s nothing, no demands on me whatsoever. Then that starts my day off right.
Never give up because theres always going to be somebody there by your side. Theres also going to be somebody there to help you. There’s always going to be somebody there that is willing to sacrifice their time and their effort to make sure you get what you give. It will get better. Just stick with what you do and be who you are and youll be fine.
We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give. — Winston Churchill
