About ASDF

Helping meet the needs of children and families affected by autism

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 eight years, ASDF has provided direct financial assistance, through all of our programs, to approximately 2,300 families who have children on the autism spectrum.

Since 2010 ASDF has given out autism awareness information to more than 3,100,000 new mothers through hospitals in all 50 states through our Autism Awareness Program.

We are proud of the work we do. We make a difference.
