I became familiar with The Autism Spectrum Disorder Foundation several years ago when a camper was provided funds to attend a camp I direct yearly for children with autism. Since that time they have funded more than 100 campers to receive a full scholarship for a week of camp they will always remember. There have been times that I have had one more camper ask at the last moment if there are any more funds and ASDF has always come through. It brings me so much joy to enter the camp season knowing that not one child has to be left out. Since that time our partnership with ASDF has given many families Christmas who simply could not afford gifts outside of the therapies needed by their child, and has given the gift of communication to a child who could not speak. They are always a joy to work with and they really seem to understand the needs of the families we serve.

I am the executive director of a nonprofit private school for children with autism. We recently had a student that could not get to school because his moms vehicle was not working. She is a single mom raising a child very impacted by autism and simply did not have the funds for the repairs. ASDF stepped in and paid for the repairs to get this young man back in our school where he can grow and thrive! I so appreciate knowing that when my kids have a genuine need I can help them turn to this foundation to help them. Thank you ASDF!

I have to thank Autism Spectrum Disorder Foundation for their donation of IPADS to my son and daughter's classroom! They will be receiving their IPADS next week and I cannot wait to see the look on their faces when they get them. This amazing gift is going to help my children tremendously!! Thank you!!!!!!

I am a speech pathologist who started a therapeutic summer camp near Portland Oregon, called Camp Yakety Yak. We focus on developing social skills and 80% of our campers are diagnosed with Autism. Since 2013, the Autism Spectrum Disorder Foundation has provided scholarships for 27 children to attend. What has impressed me most about ASDF is how supportive, easy and quick they are in responding to requests. They have no "red tape." No lengthy application processes. No restrictive rules and regulations. They get their funding into the hands of people who help children with Autism quickly. I am able focus on hiring and training the best staff and other administrative tasks to put on the camp, instead of filling out a lengthy grant application and waiting months to hear if I got it. Thanks ASDF for your professionalism and heart for children and families!

Northeast Treatment Centers really appreciate Autism Spectrum Disorder Foundation! I have requested ipad donations for three of my clients. The parents are very excited to know that their children will benefit from such a great tool. The ipads will definitely make a huge difference in their lives!

Your organization has made such an impact in MY life, knowing that their are such companies, as yours, who care for our children in the communities and are willing to give to their unique .needs.

You are appreciated!!!!

Thank You, Charlene Dance, BCM

My program provides supportive services to children with a diagnosis of autism. We work closely and intensively with these families to facilitate linkage to community supports and to coordinate care. As a case manager, my role is to deliver services that are autism-specific, child centered, family focused, and culturally competent. Autism Spectrum Disorder Foundation Inc is truly a wonderful resource that offers support for children who are coping with ASD, by offering communication devices with the purpose of facilitating the healthy development of a child's communication and social skills. Two of my clients have been fortunate enough to receive these donations and the impact so far has been astounding. Many of our families are living well below the poverty level and are unable to procure such a vital tool on their own, however with the support of this organization the possibility is awe inspiring and endearing. It was a pleasure to collaborate with the team.

My son is a kiddo on the Autism Spectrum. We heard so much about the benefits of an ipad for children on the spectrum. We tried to figure out the means to purchase one, when I heard from a friend whose child is also on the spectrum, about Autism Spectrum Disorder Foundation. This Foundation is truly a blessing. It is definitely helping with behavior skills, education and communication and we are looking for other ways that will benefit him. We are truly grateful for the Autism Spectrum Disorder Foundation. If we hand ten thousand tongue we coud not thank them enough.
