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.

Reviews for Autism Spectrum Disorder Foundation Inc

Rating: 5 stars  

We would love to give a special Thanks to Michael Slutsky & the Autism Spectrum Disorder Foundation for the gift of an IPad to our son Jesiah who is just getting over a 3.5yr battle of Cancer & was given a ASD diagnosis when he was months into his Cancer Diagnosis. It was a long difficult journey due to having a communication barrier. Our kiddo recently got over Covid and it was a tough time all around, especially financially as the entire family was down with covid and with the help of this amazing foundation, we were able to give him the gift of his voice back.
Thank You!

-Jesiah’s Momma

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!

This group is an absolute blessing to our family! It has been a disaster of a year, and this organization stepped in to help my daughter, who is severely autistic, get exactly what she needed for Christmas... a voice, which her ipad enables her to have!

Thank you!

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!

Merry Christmas!

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!

I was so happy to have received a gift card from target I was able to help my son get a leapfrog learning tablet to help him with his speech. Perfect timing for the holidays I was able to give my son some thing he really needed.

2020 has been a unique year for us all. ASDF’s generosity allowed me to support my son with an IPad due to schooling at home because of COVID. I’m forever grateful for their continued support over the years. I came across ASDF just from googling resources for support with my son while on a fixed income supporting 3 children.
