AUTISM SPECTRUM DISORDER FOUNDATION INC
July 23, 2011

As a social worker with training in the Autism field, I have serious concerns about the legitimacy of this particular organization. They have never completed Better Business (BBS) forms for investigational rankings; they are a marketing company doing "Sweepstakes"mailings which are known for bilking (especially elder) consumers and only a fraction of what is taken in actually goes to 'donations' for autism related assistance, the rest goes to company executives salary. Check out CharityNavigator.com
Using the term "Autism" in it's name, allows it to be mistaken for other similar organizations who actually DO contribute substantial assistance for families struggling with autism.

The Great!

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

My 87 yr old parents were 'sweepstakes' victims.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Disband this group of scammers.
