With medical and non-medical costs so high and most insurance policies having little to no coverage, it is difficult for many parents to cover costs for resources, programs, applications, and other items that are beneficial to an autistic child’s future.
We hear from many parents who felt they had nowhere to turn and their pleas for help were continually ignored. From social skills camps and swim lessons to holiday gift cards and iPads, Autism Spectrum Disorder Foundation is here to help parents of autistic children in any way we can.
ASDF provides emotional, educational and financial assistance to families dealing with the challenges of raising an autistic child.
If you are interested in applying for financial assistance, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Let us know which program you are interested in.
We accept requests for Scholarships each year from May 1, 2019 until June 15th. If you are interested in applying for a scholarship, please email us during that time. We will need to know what type of scholarship you are applying for (camp, swimming, equestrian, etc.) and the cost. If funds are available, we will consider your request. At that time, we will need documentation from your child’s doctor stating that they are on the Autism Spectrum. We provided financial assistance to over 145 families in 2018.
We accept requests for our Holiday Gift Card Program and our iPads for Kids Program each year from Oct. 1 until Oct. 31. If you are interested in this program, please email us during that time. If funds are available, we will consider your request. At that time, we will request your child’s full name and address and a copy of their autism diagnosis. We distributed approximately 300 Holiday Gift Cards and 100 iPads in 2018.
Autism Spectrum Disorder Foundation is a small public charity that relies on donations from the general public in order to provide its valuable programs.
