Mission Statement

Our organization is committed to raising awareness in minorities. Through education and community outreach.

Our Mission:

The Color of Autism Foundation is committed to raising public awareness about autism spectrum disorders and devoted to empowering families and lessening their isolation. We are dedicated to ensuring that all people with autism receive appropriate, effective services to maximize their growth potential and to enhance the general public's awareness of autism.

Description

We are a Non-Profit (501 c3) exempt organization committed to educating and assisting African American families with Autistic children. Autism affects children of every race, ethnic group and socioeconomic status. African-American children frequently are confronted with late diagnosis or misdiagnosis. Our goal is to help families identify the warning signs of autism early on. We can start to overturn these disparities by helping African-Americans with autism reach their full potential. Empowering families with information on autism that they can use to advocate services for their child. Early intervention is critical !
