I first met the founder (Amanda) through HBOT therapy for my daughter, who suffers from Autism and Speech Apraxia. From day one, Amanda's passion for helping others struggling with this debilitating and widely misunderstood condition shined through. The compassion she shows for my daughter and our family's situation is genuine and heartfelt. It was so refreshing to meet someone else who was willing to embrace an all-out, no-holds-barred style approach to tackle Autism. My wife and I have really struggled with the mainstream medical community because most medical "experts" just don't understand Autism or how to treat it. So many just want us to cope with a doomsday reality and have encouraged us to essentially give up when we know our daughter is worth fighting for. Amanda made us feel better about our strategy and tactics for helping our daughter and the first time I heard her daughter speak to my daughter I got goosebumps knowing we are on the same path toward healing and recovery. I believe in LGF's mission and it is now my honor to serve on the Board of Directors. Each child recovered or whose condition is significantly improved is a victory lap in LGF's important quest. So many families are in need of better resources and education... foundations like LGF are absolutely essential to championing the cause and leading the fight against Autism!

5 stars. The Founder and her team are fantastic. They have expanded their services a lot in a short amount of time. The advocacy work resulted in Autism Awareness Month being declared official for the state of Colorado. That is huge and it is good to know there are people being a voice for those who dont.

We are parents of a child on the ASD spectrum, and we became familiar with the Lily Grace Foundation through our school. LGF provided yoga classes to the students free of charge to the parents. Yoga is more than just exercise, this program the Relaxation Station, has helped our child learn skills to calm and regulate emotions - something that can be a challenge. This program was a benefit to our child and the other students in the classroom.

I met the Lily Grace Foundation at the Quiz for a Cause. My little cousin has autism and so it made me feel good to do something that I know would support a good cause. Their founder and team was very friendly and we had a great time. I appreciated the additional resources I could bring back to my family. And I got to meet Lily who is beautiful and I am so glad there is someone like this family who is being a voice for families like ours.

The yoga program implement by the LGF not only was a successful in its pilot year, it expanded into the Jeffco school district to other classrooms and my child's peers are having very positive benefits from the program. The research behind the program demonstrates it's success, but as a parent, I don't need to read the research, because I can see first hand in my child the positive changes and new tools we have learned.

In October 2015, I received a call from Amanda Shannon to share a yoga program with those who work at the Lily Grace foundation. I was immediately amazed by the loving care and incredible detail with which the staff of the Lily Grace Foundation displays. Now, in July 2015, after the yoga training is complete, I am still in awe of the courage and absolute brilliance with which this foundation functions. Congratulations to all who work for such an elevated goal.

The Lily Grace Foundation is an exceptional non-profit because it not only will benefit children on the Autism spectrum, and the families of Autistic children; but also individuals with various other neurological disorders and neurological damage. Their goal is to provide resources, respite and education to those affected and their families. I would highly recommend this non-profit.

Autism spectrum disorder and autism needs alternative and complimentary treatments because it is a group of complex disorders of brain development. No one treatment fits all, but the Lily Grace Foundation is committed to making a variety of treatments available, which is a huge gift.
