At AAF our goals as AWARENESS - EDUCATION - TREATMENT - RESEARCH - SUPPORT

  1. Our 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.
  2. Our 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.
  3. Family Support Grants -Consultation, evaluation, treatment plan and referral services by a registered nurse and physician at AAF clinics at a subsidized cost.
  4. Research Grants -Our collaboration with Rutgers University and others.
  5. Social Skills Programs - Care For A Friend is our social skills program geared towards social acceptance of autistic children amongst their "typical" peers.
Walkathon is a great opportunity to support Autism cause and at the same time receive valuable exposure in community.
