Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Autism, Disabilities, Health

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.

Programs: The foundation educates the public about autism; provides families with tools and educational materials to assist in the early detection of autism as well as tools to treat children suffering from autism; and provides families of people suffering from autism with information on programs available to assist them. The foundation provides financial assistance to the families and relevant community service organizations that help people suffering from autism. In the past 8 years, ASDF has provided financial assistance to approximately 2,740 families who have children on the autism spectrum. The financial assistance went for camp scholarships, swimming lessons, horse therapy lessons, iPads, gift cards, etc. During the same period of time, we provided autism awareness information to approximately 3,178,000 new mothers across the United States through our autism awareness program. Through our 2018 iPads for Kids Programs, we were able to send 103 iPads to children who are nonverbal. Our 2018 Holiday Gift Card Program provided 319 gift cards from Walmart and Target to families who needed assistance.

I’m super thankful for ASDF! This is the second year they have assisted with ABA Summer Camp for my son Kenden. This year they covered the entire cost of camp! I’m a single Mommie of two, without their help I couldn’t afford camp. Camp helps Kenden keep a routine, prepares him for the upcoming school year, and mostly importantly he has the opportunity to have a fun summer! ASDF thanks again for your generosity and support for Kenden!

We are very grateful for Autism Spectrum Disorder Foundation's support in this difficulty time. As a single Mom with a child with ASD, life can't be predictable at times. However, it hit us even harder with Covid-19 and laid-off from job. While praying, we had positive response from Autism Spectrum Disorder Foundation and was granted full financial aid for summer camp as they will oepn with precautions. Without this help, I wouldn't be able to start a new job this summer and my child won't be able to enjoy interacting with others. I can't thank enough! We will continue to pray for Autism Spectrum Disorder Foundation Inc. and all people who are involved, staff and clients. God bless you~!!

I have immense gratitude to the Autism Spectrum Disorder Foundation for their assistance with son Kendrick. Ken is 4 years old. The scholarship the foundation provided allowed Kendrick the opportunity to participate in the summer enrichment session at his preschool. Due to his ASD it is extremely essential for him to be continuously involved in environments with his peers that stimulate his engagement and communication. The summer enrichment session provides Ken with the educational support and structure in addition to therapies critical during this developmental stage in his life to help him learn and communicate. This support has provided him with an opportunity to be exposed to an educational environment to stimulate, excel, and advance on multiple levels during the summer.

There are still struggles as we continue this journey, which will require even more support since my wife’s passing. As a single father of two I continuously focus to navigate through strategies for Kendrick’s therapies and ways to help regulate his complex emotions and sensory challenges. This scholarship was incredibly supportive in filling a gap that my income and salary cannot meet. It is truly essential contribution to ensuring the best quality of life and development for my son.

I cannot thank the Autism Spectrum Disorder Foundation enough. Without their help and generosity my son would not have been able to continue his horse lessons and equine therapy. Since starting these lessons he has become so vocal, more confident, and has expressed his love for riding. His motor skills are getting better and he is becoming more independent everyday. Thank you so much for continuing to support kids like my son and providing help when we need it the most.

Without the Autism Spectrum Disorder Foundation our son would not have been able to receive the amount of theory he so desperately needed. Because of the funds granted by ASDF we have been able to greatly increase our son’s therapy and now our nonverbal child has started to repeat words!

We are so incredibly grateful to the Autism Spectrum Disorder Foundation for their help this summer. Due to COVID-19 all summer camps and programs in our area were abruptly closed for the summer. The ASDF came to our rescue and helped us create some structured activities, stability and routine for our two special needs kids for the summer. The Autism Spectrum Disorder Foundation saw our kids' needs and stepped in when no other organization would. Because of their generosity they have helped change the quality of our kids' lives for the better. Once again, we are forever grateful for your help!

As a family with two special needs kids and my husband out of work, the Autism Spectrum Disorder Foundation swooped in to help so that my daughter can attend a special needs summer camp this year on a farm. We want to thank Mr. Slutsky for guiding us through the application process in such an expeditious manner and for answering all of our questions. We are so incredibly grateful that MyASDF was able to provide our daughter with this enriching experience. She is so excited and cannot wait for her animal assisted therapy to begin this summer!

I want to thank the Autism Spectrum Disorder Foundation, Inc for going above and beyond to help me and my son. I contacted them about an Ipad for my son Jorden and within 6 months they provided him with it. With their help my son will be able to get assistance with a lot of the help that he needs to succeed. I most definitely will be making a donation so the foundation can continue to help other Autistic kids in need. All of your help is greatly appreciated and it will never be forgotten.

This year has been pretty rough for me because I am a single parent with a lot to take care of. My son as autism so I reached out to try to get an iPad for him... I was told there’s gift cards available so I signed up for one. My son didn’t have a Christmas this year and I was in fear he wouldn’t have a birthday which is in January. I had something arrive in the mail I needed to sign for and had no clue it was the target gift card. I broke out in tears because I felt really bad for not being able to share holidays moments happily with my son. I am so thankful because this helped me make it up for his birthday to get some of the toys in therapy he likes. Thank you! - Ashley D.

I am raising 2 boys and am low income. My oldest boy is 9 and has severe autism in addition to having Down Syndrome. He's non verbal and a runner.
His little brother is 4 and will be evaluated soon. I suspect he might have what used to be called Aspurgers but now is just considered high functioning autism.
Your generosity is greatly appreciated.
If you don't deal with autism you can't understand all an iPad helps with.
There are apps to help communicate turning the iPad into a speech device and giving them a voice.
Other kids want to see an iPad and therefore it facilitates inclusion.
It allows for inspiration and learning as well. It can be another way to see modeling of speech and behavior as well as things to try.
I can't afford to do what Autism Spectrum Disorder Foundation does but it's much needed. Thanks for your donations to them so they can help my boys and others!

My family is a grateful recipient of ASDFI ! I am a single mom with 2 boys at home. Phoenix is neurotypical 2 year old boy with some speech delays that he's getting therapy for. Leontonē is 7 years old and is dual diagnosed with autism and Down Syndrome.
I make enough with my part time income and Leontonē's SSI that they cut our food stamps but not enough to do more than basics anymore. So ASDFI made a world of difference for the boys for the holidays. It might not of been so merry without them. And Leontonē's iPad isn't just for speech. It's everything to him. Can you believe he's teaching his little brother how to use it?! That's great for both of them . It builds communication for both, their bond strengthened and I'm sure Leontonē's self esteem is built up by being able to teach and Phoenix's by learning. Please continue to support this charity. I know two boys and others like them, that are saying thank you right now and that without your generosity would be missing out in big ways

Caleb is Severely Autistic with violent behavioral problems! He also has Brain Cancer and attends St. Jude's in Tennessee through out the year. We have had to take extreme measures to try and calm this... The ASD Foundation has been an incredible and helpful experience! They helped us start the new year with some groceries in the house. They always go out of their way to help us during times of struggle! By far one of the best foundations I have ever been blessed with ! I pray one day I can return the favor and help raise money for this foundation as they will always be dear to my heart!!

My son received a wonderful surprise this holiday season, an iPad from ASDF! While he is interacting and displaying notable talent with its music composing, keyboard and drums/percussion features, I am using it to facilitate his social communication and problem solving skill development through direct teaching using mobile technology. The iPad now allows me to follow through with the information, guidance and use and App recommendations I received from social skill experts during a parent workshop. Some of social communication app recommendations include: The Room, Lets Be Social, My School Day, Social Detective and Machinarium. We have the deepest gratitude for having received important support from ASDF during our solution-seeking journey to improve our quality of life. Thank you ASDF!

My son is 10 years old recently diagnosed high functioning on the spectrum alongside combined ADHD presentation. He experiences a gap between his high abilities and his deficits. Up until 3rd grade, he achieved fairly well academically (with a lot of home support) despite cognitive learning differences. His high sensory/sensitivities, delayed balance, gross motor skill and spatial coordination, and impulsivity are the source of his social challenges.

While in water (as a form of “aqua therapy" ), he has always experienced tremendous relief for his condition relieving anxiety, expending pent up energy and ameliorating sleep/wake cycle/disturbances. In addition, his physician prescribed swimming as part of his treatment program. Since an infant, being in water – whether the pool or bath – noticeably improves his quality of life. Knowing this, I reached out to ASDF for a scholarship in sending him to a summer swim program while our insurance provider continued to delay providing for a medically-prescribed activity. We are extremely grateful for ASDF’s support. Mr. Slutsky was incredibly responsive, and my son began his swim program immediately. He is already thriving within the first two weeks of participating under the guidance of trained/certified coaches who have become a part of the solution to a better quality of life. Providing for programs that positively impact the lives of children on the spectrum is incredibly important, and can become very challenging to locate and secure. With their support, ASDF turned a challenging situation into a solution, immediately improving the quality of life for my son. ASDF has made a huge difference, and we are extremely grateful to be able to move forward with their support.

Hello,
My child is autistic.
Up until 2 years ago, I a single parent was able to make a Christmas for him. Granted it was not huge , it was small he was happy, well happy as he can act.. I was happy. Our small Christmas each year was and is special.
Two years ago I was diagnosed with chronic kidney disease stage three (now 3b) ..no longer can I work. I became devastated. What little income My son has from ssi has to use for our bills. Christmas came last year as well this year. Because of this foundation my child had and will have a Christmas. His eyes will be lit up with happiness.not only gifts under the tree but Christmas dinner.
This year Santa got him
2 pair of jeans
Underwear
Socks
4 shirts
Jacket
Pair of shoes
A book
And some star wars stickers and star wars coloring book and crayons.
Star wars Bath bubbles
He's going to be so overjoyed. My endless gratitude. From a Mom

Our family is so grateful for the assistance that Autism Spectrum Disorder Foundation provided our family by gifting a new iPad to my son. He is 5 years old and completely nonverbal and relies on an iPad for communication. His old one was no longer working leaving him without a voice. It was such a blessing to receive this new iPad. Having a special needs child means having lots of extra expenses and to have such a substantial need met meant a great deal to our family. ASDF was so easy to work with and we are inspired by the work they do supporting families like ours.

I was online browsing for different resources to assist my daughter with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder). I ran across this organization that stated they will send a $100 gift card to your store of choice from a list of options they had for the holidays. I wasn't 100% sure if this was legit but I figured I would take a chance because they were not asking for any personal information besides proof my child was diagnosed with ASD. A few weeks had went pass and I honestly forgot about it but just a week before the holiday i checked my mailbox and the gift card was there! I am so thankful for this blessing at this time. Thank you for helping my family at the most important time of the year. My little girl is going to be so happy with the toys she receives!

I’m a single mom 2 kids, this year I didn’t know how I was gonna make Christmas happen, do to not being able to work so much because of lack of a sitter and because of all the therapy my daughter has through out the day. Then I found out about this, I honestly didn’t know if I was going to get a gift card because I didn’t hear back after awhile and then the other day I checked the mail and there it was letter and gift card from y’all! I am forever great full for this and everything y’all do. It is extremely appreciated and loved! Merry Christmas! God bless

We can't express how thankful we are to the doners that helped all the children go to camp this year.

My family received a gift card this holiday from the ASDF through Autism Pensacola. My 10 year old son on the spectrum will now be able to get his favorite items for Christmas. Thank you for helping my family this holiday season!

ASDF is such a wonderful organization that helps families all over the United States that have loved ones living with autism. Funds that they have shared with Autism Pensacola in 2018 has directly benefited my 9 year old son with autism to allow him to attend Kids for Camp and receive a gift card for Christmas. Without the help from ASDF, my child would have not received assistance to attend camp and Christmas would have not been a great as it was this year. Thank you for all you do for families like mine all over the United States. You all rock!

Saying thank you doesn't seem to express my gratitude for the gift card donation my family received. After all the help this foundation provides special needs family through out the year and they can still make Christmas happen too. Words fail me. Thank you.
