Autism encompasses a range of conditions characterized by challenges with social interaction, verbal and non-verbal communication, and repetitive behaviors.

Autism is lifelong and brings with it a heavy financial burden, from the diagnostic testing process itself, to intensive behavioral interventions and therapy, to increased medical expenditures. It also often brings additional stress and emotional strain.

Our mission is to promote autism awareness and to help children affected by autism by providing education and resources.

At KNOWAutism Foundation, our goal is to support families and reduce the burden of an Autism diagnosis by:

  • providing direct financial assistance to families
  • raising community awareness of the early signs of autism and the importance of early intervention
  • supporting community programs that serve children and families impacted by autism
  • facilitating access to resources and services
  • and working to improve the rates of early diagnosis/intervention to help improve the longterm outcomes for children with autism
