As a huge hockey fan and the parent of a child with autism, I was thrilled to learn about the American Special Hockey Association several years ago. I immediately knew that I wanted to get involved to give more children the opportunity to learn and grow by playing this great sport. I started as a volunteer, then a coach, and now a board member. The program continues to improve and grow thanks to committed partners, coaches, parents, volunteers, and donors. As a donor, I like the fact that all donations directly support programs -- because ASHA has no paid staff or board members. When you support ASHA or any individual ASHA program, you can be assured that you are directly helping put more children on the ice, putting smiles on their faces, and contributing to their health and well-being.

I am honored to be a member of this life changing organization. 100% goes back to the players. For players with a developmental disability, ASHA is unbeatable in the area of "life skills through hockey". This organization will bend over backwards to help a new program get going anywhere in the United States.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I've watched children talk for the first time, dress for the first time on their own. I've seen a great new self esteem come from all of the athletes.
