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.

KNOWAutism Foundation is a 501 (c) 3 organization and all gifts are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. 

KNOWAutism was created specifically for families affected by Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) with the goals of providing information about autism, offering a roadmap for diagnosis and intervention, raising awareness in our community, and working with schools and other organizations to develop programs that meet the evolving needs of children and families affected by autism. We believe that no child should be left untreated due to lack of information, awareness, or financial resources. It is our hope to create a supportive community for families affected by ASD and to let families know that they are not alone.

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

Together we can make a difference in the lives of children affected by autism.
