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.

I had to sign in and express my deep gratitude for your support. The IPAD for my son will be such a great tool. I just have to learn how to use it; better yet, we will have to learn together! The Parker Autism Foundation has been so amazing. Thank you ASDF for giving us this opportunity.

My son has ASD and has had the great opportunity to attend Camp Odakoda this past summer thanks to the generous donation of Autism Spectrum Disorder Foundation. The financial aid you provided helped our family and made it possible for our son to go to this amazing camp for kids with autism spectrum disorder. It is a camp he looks forward every summer because he gets to be himself around kids just like him.

My son received an iPad mini from your organization and the look on his face when i opened the box and showed him what was inside brought tears to my eyes.We are currently struggling financially at the moment so to receive a gift like this for our son was truly a blessing.Everyone in our household was thankful and inspired by your organizations graciousness and to show our gratitude we have pledged to help others just as your organization has helped us.Our family sincerely thanks the people at Autisim Spectrum Disorder Foundation INC :)
