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. 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.

Programs: The foundation educates the public about autism; provides families 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 relevent community service organizations that help people suffering from autism.

I recently emailed the Autism Spectrum Disorder Foundation,asking if they helped with strollers for children on the spectrum. I specified my son who is 7 yo,and can walk perfectly fine,but he wanders and runs. Mr. Michael Slutsky emailed me quite quickly,and informed they would be more than happy to assist with the purchase of one. He just needed proof of his diagnosis and to email a picture of the stroller of my choice. I sent in my my sons papers,and a picture of what I had found. He quickly sent back the confirmation order,and my sons stroller will be here Monday. If it wasn't for Mr. Michael Slutsky and this amazing foundation,this would have never been possible. I can't thank you enough. I will be forever grateful!

Dear ASDF,

Thank you for your partnership with Parker Autism Foundation. Because of your kind, generous support, my grandson with autism could not otherwise afford these life-enhancing activities. Camp scholarships definitely helped Ryan be comfortable where activities really suit him. The Parker Autism Foundation has provided him great role models and many friends to be comfortable in sharing his own unique personality with others. Shelley and staff know him so well they know exactly the holiday gifts that will be his favorites!

Sincerely,
Linda Brown

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.
