Challenge

During the 2020 pandemic social isolation is even more challenging for people with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). One in six children are diagnosed with ASD each year according to the Centers for Disease Control. The Family Autism Center serves over 930 individuals and their families who look to our organization to provide their children with social and recreational opportunities that the community at large does not offer. Ensuring engaging programs and support is a priority.

Solution

We will be able to continue to offer healthy, active programming to the families we serve. Qualified staff will encourage people with Autism to engage in healthy safe activities within their community. We also help individuals foster relationships with their peer within communities they are a part of, encouraging appropriate social interactions, while promoting healthy active lifestyles through the variety of program offerings.

Long-Term Impact

People with Autism will benefit from participating in these activities especially during this period of isolation and beyond. They will benefit from a more healthy lifestyle and socializing with their peers. The community at large will benefit as it will build capacity to meet the needs of all its citizens.
