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.

The Autism Spectrum Disorder Foundation has been a wonderful partner of Autism Pensacola for years! This Christmas season, the ASDF was able to provide 32 holiday gift cards to children and adults living with autism in Northwest Florida. Many of the recipient families are on fixed incomes which makes it near possible to help provide their child with the things they need during the holiday season. The ASDF has greatly impacted each recipient family by not only providing the holiday gift card, but also giving them hope which is priceless. Thank you ASDF for making a difference in the lives of those living with autism!

My Family and I would like to take a moment to give thanks and show our deepest appreciation to” The Autism Spectrum Disorder Foundation” and to Mr. Michael Slutsky.
The application process was so professional and we had very good communication.
To our great surprise we received the gift card for my son, which made my son so happy.
The most touching thing about is believing that you are not alone in your fight, that there is a foundation like “The Autism Spectrum Disorder Foundation" that shares your sorrows and helps you to believe to miracle and humanity. My son will be able to receive the gifts from his list that we couldn't have without this help. Thank you again.

This foundation has been such a blessing for our family. We are a single income home and have two biological children on the spectrum and recently became foster parents of a child on the spectrum. Our son is completely non verbal so being able to be a part of the ipad program has been a crucial part in helping develop his language skills. In the past we have also been a part of the gift card program. This program also makes a huge difference in what we can do for our kids for christmas. We truly appreciate everything this organization does for people in need. Thank you for making Christmas less of a stressful thing and more enjoyable for our kids.

Autism Spectrum Disorder Foundation rocks! Leo got his iPad on Friday and has been on it non-stop. He loves the interactive learning games, the stories being read to him, and the technology that is built into the iPad. He is skipping, squealing, and as happy as could be with his new iPad. This will really help him in a variety of ways, and is such a valuable tool you gave my little one. This donation is truly a gift from God and we are so happy the ASDF is here to help our little non-verbal guy, express himself, and learn to do more. Thank you!

Words can not properly express my gratitude. ASDF provided us with the means to make this holiday season extra special for our kiddos. After making sure all their needs are met financially, finding the funds for their wish lists can be difficult... Thank You so so much ASDF for meeting that challenge and spreading some greatly appreciated holiday cheer!

ASDF goes above and beyond to make dreams come true for families with kiddos on the spectrum! My daughter desperately needed an iPad with certain apps recommended by her developmental pediatrician, and these people have really, really blessed us! This would not have been possible without the genuine support and caring of people who care like this! Thank you so much! We don't know what we would've done without you all!

My 3 year old daughter was just diagnosed with level 3 autism, and we have had a very tough year... just as many of you have. This organization has been the answer to our prayers. We have six children, and our baby girl requires so much money for speech therapies, occupational therapies, medical bills, there was no money left for Christmas, or even for Christmas dinner... These people have given us a reason to smile, when there wasn't much of one before at this time of year! Thank you for the blessings you have brought to our family!

My son Jett needed an Ipad so bad to just help him calm down at times and just to decompress. We also are wanting to look into the communication apps and so forth. We are so thankful for this awesome company for hooking my boy up with an Ipad. We applied for the Ipad a little over a month ago and recieved it this past weekend. So thankful for this company and all that they do!

My son Zane is 11 with severe non verbal autism and back in October I signed up for an ipad and in November he got an ipad mini. I was surprised because I have signed up at bigger nonprofits at autism speaks several times and never got anything. My son is very happy with his new ipad. I could not have afforded to buy this myself and very grateful for asdf. What a blessing they are to my family.

I came across the ASDF after hearing about their iPad program for children of autism. My 4 year old son was officially diagnosed on the spectrum earlier this year. Prior to his diagnosis, we took proactive measures and used an older iPad (2nd gen) I once used to help him develop his speech and writing skills with the help of local therapists. This worked adequately until the iPad started showing its age and we could no longer use it effectively. While we were able to continue his therapy, it did slow down the progress he was making. I was prepared to buy a second hand iPad that wasn't the latest but that would have gotten us along with the minimal standards and keep us within our budget. A local autism family support group recommended we make a request through ASDF. We filled out the application and received a reply via email within a few days asking us to submit our child's official ASD diagnosis. We understood ahead of time that there would be plenty of others making similar requests and that it would be several months before we received a final response. In the meantime, we continued working hard with our son who has made great strides in his therapy sessions. Then I received an email from ASDF that my son will be receiving his iPad by the end of the week! Just a week shy of his 5th birthday! This particular iPad is Apple Pencil capable which means, we will be able to ramp up his writing therapy at home or wherever we need to be that day now. I am so grateful for what Autism Spectrum Disorder Foundation is doing for my son and others who were able to receive their iPads. This technology makes the difference between walking and running a race. Autism will always be a part of who my son is but through this program, it will help him integrate with his peers and allow him to develop at a quicker pace so he's not left behind.

Please consider giving ASDF your support by helping them continue to donate iPads to children of autism. It will be a sound investment in their future.

Thank you from my parents, guardians and students. Most of my students are non verbal or limited verbal and their care giver's are always looking for ways to encourage some kind of communication out of their young adult. By using these free app's like; Going places, The social express or Smart Ed Tech, our students have a new way to request wants, needs and turn taking. These are apps we use in school and my parents can use at home. One of my parents called me to share how her son's vocabulary has increased tremendously after only a few weeks using the free app autism speech therapy. I let her know myself and the speech teacher here at Charles Drew have noticed it to. Thanks again for caring enough to give to my wonderful students. I enjoy the many faces of autism and through technology they can shine!

My Family and I would like to take a moment to give thanks and show our deepest appreciation to The Autism Spectrum Disorder Foundation Inc for assisting with funds to provide our son Jacob with Aquatics Therapy. We were blessed to have found The ASD Foundation on the "autism speaks" website. At that time, our son had completed a PT evaluation and was highly recommended to receive PT even though he has no physical disabilities. Once we contacted The ASD Foundation, they really showed importance and were very caring in trying to assist our son to receive Aquatics therapy. Once we put them in contact with Swim Angel Fish who would provide the Aquatics Therapy, The ASD Foundation made the transaction very easy and friendly to make sure that our son would be covered for his Aquatics Therapy. We hope and pray that, The ASD Foundation can continue to assist families with special needs children for many years to come. Because of foundations like this one, it provides families with such support and hope that we can help our special needs children to make all the necessary progress. Thank you so much! from the bottom of our hearts.

I am director of two organizations in the Atlanta, Georgia area. I am so very grateful for the Autism Spectrum Disorder Foundation. The School where I am Executive Director has relied repeatedly on this organization to fill the gap with students' families face unexpected crises that hit their budget hard. Because of this organization, I have been able to tell many families that their child can continue in school because we know where to seek help. Because of ASDF many students have been able to have the kind of summer services that allow them to continue to learn and grow and develop during the long summer months. The other organization that I direct has summer camps and respite services for families. Many children who do not have the means to pay for summer camps where they work on critical social, communication and life skills are able to attend. I am so proud to be associated with this organization. Again and again, they have stepped up for the families I serve and they have allowed me to be in a position to use all the resources available to them to help their children reach their full potential.

My daughter is 15 years old and has autism with ADHD and Bi-polar disorder. She is an only child and struggles with making friends. Since she is 15 there are not summer camp programs for her age. She was staying with a family member for the day who was not able to take her on outings during the summer. The Autism Spectrum Disorder Foundation provided payment for her to attend a week of summer camp for kids on the spectrum. She was able to make friends and enjoy a fun filled week of activities. Due to our struggles of paying for her specialty treatments this would not have been possible.
She was able to gain self-confidence skills and feel totally normal for a full week of her life. She loved Camp Lakey Gap in Black Mountain, NC and has expressed returning next year if possible. She came home with a glow we had never seen before. At camp she felt able to be herself around other campers who struggled with the same issues.
When I say this was the happiest week of her life I really mean it because these were her exact words.
Children with Autism do not get to share many happy moments in their social lives because they view themselves as different and are often treated different by peers. When they are able to come together for fun events they enjoy each other and the time they spend together.
Thank you so much for this life changing event in our lives. We are beyond grateful.

Our family is so incredibly thankful to the Autism Spectrum Foundation for their assistance. I am the single mom of two amazing little boys, both of whom happen to have multiple medical needs. My older son has an autism diagnosis as well as multiple medical issues. He has been referred for many therapies including speech/language, OT, PT and equine therapies. Many of his medical expenses are not fully covered by insurance, and we have a lot of expenses due to having to travel, sometimes hundreds of miles, to his specialists appointments. My son relates well with animals and benefits immensely from equine therapy. I am not able to continue paying out of pocket for this very beneficial therapy. We were blessed to receive a grant from Autism Spectrum Disorder Foundation, Inc. to cover his equine assisted therapy services and have seen so much progress through these services, progress that I do not believe we would have seen otherwise. Thank you.

I am a Migrant Advocate at the Migrant Farmworkers Assistance Fund and want to thank Michael Slutsky and ASDF for their partnership with our organization. The financial assistance one of our families received this summer allowed their son, Fabi, to attend Camp Encourage. Camp Encourage is an overnight summer camp in Linwood KS, specifically for kids diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. Thanks to the assistance from ASDF, Fabi was able to attend Camp Encourage and had a wonderful time! One of his goals while at camp was to ride a horse – and he did! On behalf of the family and our organization, thank you for helping create such great memories for Fabi!

Aaron's Acres is a non-profit organization that provides year round recreational programs to children and young adults, ages 5-21 with developmental disabilities. For this summer (2019), we received an extremely generous donation from ASDF to support families who wished to send their children to the camp program, but needed financial assistance. Helping these families financially allowed these families to register their children for our program and not experience additional stress regarding how they would pay for it. Too often our families face numerous stressors as they raise children with varying challenges. For this summer, the families who received this type of support were able to relax a bit and know that their children were in a safe, supportive, therapeutic setting, focusing on building and strengthening socialization and communication skills. Thank you to ASDF!

During the summer, we have a camp program that serves over 200 children. As a result of receiving a grant from the Autism Spectrum Disorder Foundation, eight families who were facing financial difficulties were able to register their children (diagnosed with having autism) for camp. One of the campers on the first day of camp said, "I see my friend, Matt". Mom shared that her son never said the words "my friend".

The assistance from ASDF has led to a meaningful life for my son. His funding was for job and cognitive coaching so he could learn the skills to participate on a job search for potential employment. This must be taught by a provider that understands individuals on the autism spectrum and their language and soft skill challenges. This finding assistance will enable my son to b come part of his community which he deserves th right to. Meaningful inclusion is very important to our children’s well being, self esteem and mental health. Leaning does not end when school ends.

Our son is almost 14 years old and is diagnosed with high functioning autism. We reached out to ASDF to ask
for help to send him to summer camp. The program we found is amazing and due to the generosity of ASDF, our son
will have a fun summer experience. The expense of summer programming for kids on the spectrum is usually high and we rely on scholarships and help. Our son is often rigid and afraid to try new things but he is supported and encouraged to step out of his box, make new friends and try something new. He LOVES the camp and thrives over the summer engaged in things which every child should have the opportunity to experience. We are so grateful to ASDF and Mr Slutsky for making this come true for our son and our family. This agency is sensitive and responsive when many others are not. Someday I hope to be able to give back to help another child.

Our 7-year old son was diagnosed on the autism spectrum 2 years ago and it has been a struggle finding a camp that can meet his needs yet also meet our limited financial resources. I thank God that I stumbled across the ASDF website as there is no way we could send our son to the social skills camp we were told about by our son's occupational therapist. We appreciate you Mr. Slutsky and hope that we can return the favor in kind!

Stay tuned for Part 2 of this review after he finishes camp in August!

Thank you so much for your support for my son to attend Equine Therapy at HERD Foundation!

equine therapy has been so effective w/ my son Ranson. He loves riding, being around miniature horses and other kids. It is healing and give him self esteem. The women are wonderful here. They really care & made serious issues fun for our children!

Our family would like to say THANK YOU for your generous sponsorships for my son, Ranson to attend social skills camp in Boca Raton, Fl. It will be life changing for him!

My son is an Autistic teenager trying to find his niche' in this world. This clinician is well known and I have been wanting for several years Ranson to attend his social skills groups, but his insurance did not cover it.

These are skills that are so important to Autistic children. Learning them in a unique way is what it takes. Now my son, Ranson will have this chance.

I also appreciate the transportation scholarship as well. I am a single mother who is recovering from a serious illness.

I am very grateful with this organization for helping kids to become amazing! My son went to camp last year & I know that it helped him so much to become a little bit more independent. He is very excited for camp this year and for the opportunity to make new friends and socialize in general because it is very hard for him. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the opportunity to live this experience!

I would like to take a moment to thank Michael and the Autism Spectrum Disorder Foundation for their help this summer with summer camp tuition for my son Noah. I am just beyond grateful because when you have a child on the spectrum their care is your number one priority and affording the proper care for them is hard. I am a single parent doing the best I can and I was really at a loss on how I would be able to afford summer camp this summer. Thank you so much for quick responses and communication. You have taken a worry off my mind. Our family thanks you from the bottoms of our hearts!

This foundation is absolutely amazing. They have enabled my son to take therapeutic horse riding lessons when he wouldn’t have been otherwise able to do so. Their application process is simple, but thorough, and they’re incredibly fast and responsive. They work with you to get what your child needs and aren’t stuck in a “no” or “this is the rule and we must follow exactly the same procedure every time” philosophy. Thank you so much!!!!
