Reviews for Autism Spectrum Disorder Foundation Inc

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a divorced single mom of an 18-year-old son with autism. He recently became interested in horses, so I sought out horse therapy, not realizing the cost of such a therapy. I started looking on the internet and what I found was nothing short of a blessing. I came across this fantastic organization called the Autism Spectrum Disorder Foundation. I contacted them and within an hour I was contacted back with an answer that they would pay for his entire lessons. I cannot wait to see the look on his face when he gets on that horse this Friday afternoon and when I tell him he gets to go back each week. Thank you doesn't seem enough for this wonderful gift they have given us. Please consider donating to this wonderful organization so they may help more families like ours.

I am a divorced single mom of a precious three year old daughter with ASD. I contacted the ASDF about helping me pay for my daughter's tuition for a preschool program her doctor's agreed she needed to stay in. Within three hours, I was contacted by ASDF and they wanted to pay for my daughter's entire school year tuition. Words can't express how thankful I am for their generosity and the incredible people who donate to ASDF.

My 6 year old son is able to attend the Mississippi State University Autism Summer Camp thanks to a generous donation from the Autism Spectrum Disorder Foundation, Inc. He is learning math, reading, and social skills in a month long camp that will help him transition to the first grade. After two weeks we were already seeing major improvements in our son's social skills. He initiated a hug and he introduced me to a friend he had made at camp. This is a major accomplishment for our normally socially withdrawn son. We are extremely grateful to this organization. Please donate to them so they can continue to benefit other families. Sincerely, Cindi Patrick, Mom

My name is Ms. Ellis. After the request for an ipad and minimal paperwork, we received an ipad mini. My son is extremely happy and pleased to have the device. He has the opportunity now to learn more academically and within the autism spectrum, through autism apps that we have located. We are extremely grateful.


Thank You,
Ms. Ellis.

My 3 year old son has a receptive language delay and has been using PECS and visual cues. The Autism Spectrum Disorder Foundation was very professional and prompt. After very minimal paperwork and proof of a diagnosis, they shipped an iPad mini of my son's very own. I'm on SSI, so to be able to receive something like this was a blessing! He's already exploring an AAC app! He's loving some of the emotion apps, Little People, and the Signed Stories ASL app. It was a great experience, and I would recommend them to anyone!

Wow! Out of the blue, I contacted ASDF about getting an Ipad for our 5 year old daughter. After minimal paperwork our new Ipad mini arrived last week and she's been using it a lot. Toca Boca and ABC Mouse are among her favorites. Thank you so Much Mr. Slutsky!!

I can't explain the joy my boys felt when they received there Ipad in the mail, they haven't put it down yet. I have already downloaded a sign language app as well as ABC mouse for me to work with them on. The Autism Spectrum Disorder Foundation has not only delivered what they promised, but truly changed our lives!

My son, Alexander, has ASD, but is verbal. Even though he is verbal he has a hard time expressing his wants, needs, and emotions effectively. He throws tantrums because of this. When I heard about the Autism Spectrum Disorder Foundation was giving people with ASD iPad's, I thought I'd give the iPad a try. The day we received it, it turned my son's communication around! He can tell us his want's, needs, and emotions without the frustration he would normally have. Thank you Austism Spectrum Disorder Foundation!
