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.

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 11 years, ASDF has provided financial assistance to approximately 4,700 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 6 million new mothers across the United States through our autism awareness program. Through our 2020 iPads for Kids Programs, we were able to send 144 iPads to children who are nonverbal. In 2021, we were able to send 145 iPads. Our 2020 Holiday Gift Card Program provided 329 gift cards from Walmart and Target to families who needed assistance. In 2021, we provided 377 Holiday Gift Cards.

My daughter Sophia was approved for a grant to help pay for her ABA therapy. This financial help has been such a blessing because we pay out of pocket for her services. We are a single income family and are forever grateful. Thank you

I would like to thank ASDF on behalf of Ozguc family for providing our 4 year old with ASD to attend adaptive swim classes. This would not have been possible without generosity of this foundation. It's amazing to know how much communities care about our most vulnerable population. Thank you!

I could not be more grateful to the Autism Spectrum Foundation for affording my daughter the opportunity to go to Camp Pegasus this summer. Camp Pegasus is a wonderful camp for students on the autism spectrum and my daughter has really thrived at this camp in previous years. She still maintains friendships she formed at camp. It is very expensive, so I would not be able to send her without the ASD Foundation's support. They have made such a difference in my daughter's life. Thank you so much!

We are mor than thankful for the financial aid that we receive for my son to join the camp. He has ASD and struggles with socialization, communication and anxiety for new things and people. The camp will give him a chance to learn all those skills to better function in his daily life. Your organization has given many families like us such a big hope for a sense of inclusiveness and love for our children.

My son has ASD and also struggles with socialization and anxiety. We found a summer camp that could help him with those skills but the cost was so expensive. I just accidentally found and contacted Autism Spectrum Disorder Foundation for some financial assistance. We were blessed to receive the fund to fully cover the cost for the camp. The help was really huge for us as a family with a special need kid especially for my son. We cannot thank enough for that generosity.

This holiday we received a donation in order to help provide a better Christmas for my son. My son was having so much of a struggle with school last year that I decided that staying home and trying online school was best for him. This meant my being unemployed. As a single mom, this decision was difficult and even scary. My son came first. If it wasn't for the Autism Spectrum Disorder Foundation sending us a donation to spend on gifts, there would not have been much if anything for my son to open on Christmas. With this donation, he was able to open his favorite gifts. He loves anything with letters, numbers, characters and languages. He was so happy to receive stickers, magnets, books, games and puzzles. I am so thankful for the help and support from ASDF for a wonderful Christmas!
