Mission:

The goal of ASDF is to support children with an autism spectrum disorder by providing information, education and financial assistance to their families and relevant community service organizations. Funds donated to ASDF will be used to address any and all kinds of issues in assisting children with autism and their families. By providing financial assistance to families and autism-specific organizations, together we are able to give autistic children and their families the resources they need to grow. In addition, we spread awareness by providing Early Detection Kits, free of charge, to individuals and agencies who work with infants, toddlers and preschool children. In the past five years, ASDF has provided direct financial assistance to approximately 1,427 families who have children on the autism spectrum. The financial assistance went for camp scholarships, iPads for children who are nonverbal, swimming lessons, horse therapy lessons and holiday gift cards. During the same period of time, we provided autism awareness information to approximately 2,478,000 new mothers across the United States through our autism awareness program.

Reviews for Autism Spectrum Disorder Foundation Inc

Rating: 5 stars  

The Autism Spectrum Disorder Foundation has been a HUGE blessing for me and my daughter. I am a single mom and on a very tight budget. When I contacted ASDF last summer to see if they could help out a little with my daughter's preschool tuition so we could keep her in a neurotypical peer environment they replied with an hour and said they'd pay the entire monthly amount for the entire school year! To say we were blessed is an understatement. Their financial assistance has given my daughter an amazing school experience. She has learned so much from her peers and has LOVED school! She even graduated from speech therapy after 2 years! Thank you so much ASDF!

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.

We would like to express our deepest, heartfelt gratitude to ASDF for your continued support to Parker Autism Foundation. Your generous donation has touched our lives in so many ways, but more recently, provided us the opportunity to give our children Christmas gifts that we could not otherwise provide for them. On behalf of so many families in the Charlotte Metro area, your lifeline support to PAF is HUGE, as resources and services are lax in our area in comparison to other large cities. From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU!

We received an iPad mini as well as a holiday gift card for our family. It was a huge help in so many ways. Our little one is completely non verbal so the iPad is helping bridge that connection that we needed. The gift card was a huge help in so many ways. Having a child on the spectrum can be an expensive thing especially when you want to give your child everything that will help make them feel comfortable. We are thankful for this non profit. Thank.you to all who donate to this organization!
