Want to join me in making a difference? We are raising money to benefit Akhil Autism Foundation, and any donation will help make an impact. Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me. As a parent, you never ever want to leave the doctor’s office hearing the words, "There is NO HOPE for your child with AUTISM.."

2002- 20 Years ago on that day, is when I took on the mission to prove that there is a HOPE for children with AUTISM and can thrive in this world!

Today, individuals with autism have broken through the barriers to finding employment, getting college degrees, and working their way toward independent lives. 40% of individuals are nonverbal but some of them have managed to write books.

Why there is a need for funding
There are still MANY challenges that need to be addressed and we at the Akhil Autism Foundation are seeking to revolutionize how autism is understood and ultimately treated.

Each child with autism is truly unique and different in how they can be understood better. There are kids like my son Akhil, who are minimally verbal, yet have the capacity to take Calculus and writing courses at college. There are others, who struggle to communicate on a daily basis, not because there is anything wrong with them, but simply the right tools are not available to help them communicate.

With all the technological innovations we have, I know there IS a way to bridge this gap.
