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 10 years, ASDF has provided financial assistance to approximately 4,000 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 5 million new mothers across the United States through our autism awareness program. Through our 2019 iPads for Kids Programs, we were able to send 84 iPads to children who are nonverbal. In 2020, we were able to send 144 iPads. Our 2019 Holiday Gift Card Program provided 354 gift cards from Walmart and Target to families who needed assistance. In 2020, we provided 329 Holiday Gift Cards.

Thank you very much to Michael and Autism Spectrum Disorder Foundation and all the staff behind scenes that made possible the last year that little ones in the spectrum had a big smile in their faces with a gift.
My daughter Nirvana was awarded with $100 e-card from target and she was able to pick her own gifts.
Once again, you’re angels and thank you for continue bringing happiness to our love ones.

Love,

Marlene.

We feel so blessed and grateful! Been a single mother is difficult day by day not only just in terms of time but also in terms of economy, trying to provide my daughter with all that her condition of life needs, it’s a real challenge!
Fortunately, We been referred for another parents with the same situation then me, and I’m hopping my review can help you to realize that you’re not alone!
My daughter Nirvana, is 7 years old and enjoys swimming a lot, not just for fun also is helping her to relieve her tantrums and her sensory issues, after swimming you can notice that She seems calmer and more relaxed, and would not be possible without the help of people like Michael and Autism Spectrum Disorder Foundation provide us!!

Thank you beyond words!

We are very thankful for the assistance we received for our son who has autism. He loves the water and we wanted to enroll him in swimming classes for him to learn swimming skills. This organization helped us with funding for swimming classes for our son. Without this funding he will not be able to attend these classes. Our son loves the water and looks forward to his time in the pool. He has been able to learn how to float and is taking a few strokes. We are so thankful of this donation and this opportunity for our son. We cry of excitement everything we bring him to his swim lessons.

Thanks from the bottom of my heart.

I am so thankful for the support that Autism Spectrum Disorder Foundation has shown our organization and our participants, over the last several years. Their continued support allows us to offer scholarships to more families who are facing financial challenges and wouldn't be able to come otherwise. Thank you so much!

The support from the Autism Spectrum Disorder Foundation has helped provide access to our programs for many of our participants over the past several years. Our families are most grateful for this scholarship support, giving their children the opportunity to learn and grow through our social and recreational programs at Aaron's Acres! Thank you for your outstanding partnership and support of our participants in this way!

I am so thankful for ASDF for proving my son with a wonderful tablet. He's such a loving, and caring person. He is very bright and hands-on. He is also a visual learner. Words can not express how much this iPad means to him. He endures it and walks around with it daily for educational use. A few of his top favorites are starfall and YouTube kids educational videos, along with Mario.
