Description

Autism Facts:

  • Autism affects 1 in 54 children 
  • There is no early medical detection or cure for Autism.
  • Autism receives less than 5% of the research of many less prevalent childhood diseases.
  • Autism costs a family about $60,000 a year.
  • 80% of individuals with Autism are unemployed. 

Akhil Autism Foundation (AAF) is a NJ-based non-profit organization whose dedicated mission is to Educate, Treat, Support, and Research Autism worldwide, especially in under-served countries such as India. Since 2008, AAF has provided critical resources to 1000 children, over 500 hours of online education, and over $50,000 in grants towards autism research, professional training, and parent education. To learn more about our group programs and activities, please visit our website (www.akhilautismfoundation.org).

AAF goals: AWARENESS – EDUCATION – TREATMENT – RESEARCH – SUPPORT

  • Workshops and Seminars – We identify emerging/cutting-edge treatments and therapies in the field of Autism and invite leading practitioners from all over to conduct workshops at a subsidized cost in a central location that caters to a large network of families. Furthermore we provide grants to those families that require additional financial assistance to participate in our programs.
  • Efforts Overseas – We collaborate with organizations in developing countries (with much less access to the latest therapies and treatments) and sponsor workshops, clinics, and programs such as “Treat-A-Child” (in India) to spread awareness on the latest innovations and techniques in the field of autism.
  • Family Support Grants – consultation, evaluation, treatment plan and referral services by a registered nurse and physician at AAF clinics at a subsidized cost.
  • Research Grants – Our collaboration with Rutgers University and others.
  • Social Skills Programs – Care For A Friend is our social skills program geared towards social acceptance of autistic children amongst their “typical” peers.
