The cost of services, treatment and care for a child affected by autism take a heavy toll on a family’s budget. Families make great sacrifices and often compromise and prioritize basic family needs to provide their children with the therapies, schooling and medical treatment necessary to improve their quality of life.
There are an abundance of resources on autism trends, treatments and research available, but the financial burdens autism families face tend to get overlooked. ASDF works with families and autism-specific organizations to take some of the financial burden off their shoulders.
By providing funding for programs that benefit an autistic child’s specific needs, ASDF lets families know they are not alone in their efforts and gives them hope for the future.
In the past five years, ASDF has provided direct financial assistance, through all of our programs, to approximately 1,427 families who have children on the autism spectrum.
During this 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.
We are proud of the work we do. We make a difference.
