There are hundreds of grants available for children with special needs. While few are specifically for touch screen computers, there are many "quality of life" grants that can be used to buy anything that will improve the quality of life of your child. Touch screen computers are excellent for children with autism and help even those with Kanner's autism become more independent. A good way to find computer grants is to look for education or therapy grants that might apply to the computer programs you want for your child.
