If you are not happy with the way the world is, you can change it! That is what we are trying to do through United For Autism.
Statistics tell us that 1 in 150 children have Autism. These statistics are based on a study done on 8 year old children. This number does not include everyone on the Autism Spectrum. These numbers would be much higher if the study was done on everyone with Autism. This is why our non-profit organization was formed and founded. United for therapy for adults with autism provides assistance to families living with Autism. We are also an organization that promotes Autism Awareness, Support, Research, treatments and that Autism is completely treatable.
We have strong beliefs that Autism is not going to go away on it’s own. It will take the support of everyone in the world to make an impact. United For Autism is a board and member based organization, we function fully on donations, grants, member dues, sponsorships and the support of volunteers. Our mission is to promote Autism to everyone around the world, and this is not possible with out people like you. You may not think that Autism has no relationship to you but it does. What if you or someone you know found out they had Autism, or a child with Autism? I am sure that you have come in contact with someone living with Autism at one point. It will happen, Autism is on the rise and it is time we make a difference and start helping these individuals. We are a new non-profit organization that can not fully function to the capacity we have set unless we gain the support of people like you. Take second and become familiar with Autism.

Autism does not discriminate against anyone, it will strike anyone at anytime. It is time that we all stand together and make a difference in families living with Autism. You can be apart of something amazing. I am the founder of United For Autism, and I have a child living with Autism. My child has Asperger’s Syndrome, he was diagnosed at the young age of 2 1/2 years old. It was heart breaking to know that our baby had Autism. Being the mother of 3 children, my youngest having Autism. I never would have thought that I would have a child with Autism. I never got involved or concerned myself with it until it hit our family. Autism is a family illness and it is stressful on any family, and it can be emotionally stressful as well as financially stressful. These are the two reasons that United For Autism was founded. Our goal is to provide help for these families in tough times when there is no where else to turn.
