About Our Grant Program

Our ability to raise funds is the single most important activity that determines our grant-giving for the year. Once we determine how much we can give each year, we review the following items when considering approval of a grant request:

Completion of grant application – The application must be completed in its entirety to be reviewed. Partially completed applications will be kept on file for one year and additional information may be submitted to make the application complete within that timeframe.

Amount of grant request – Typical grants awarded range between $100 – $5,000.

Household income – While we have not set an income level cap, incomes below $100,000 per year are reviewed first.

Type of treatment requested – Our mission is to fund effective treatments and needed assessments.

Numbers of family members with ASD diagnosis – Applications from families with multiple children with ASDs are reviewed first.

    Thanks to Allah that he have.Hamza has learned the Arabic alphabet and the Serbian tender.learned suretul Nas…each day listening to 24 ajet Bakara.Unfortunately there is not much help from the society and it is very difficult in our poor country to achieve a lot…no money for toys for him…
    we do not have your house and are constantly moving and do not find him for security…landlords when they hear that they have autism are not willing to take the family to live with them.Allah is our helper….

      I was very touched by your comment, and I pray that we can find solution for the problems so many are facing. please let me know what language are you speaking, and I will try to translate some of my post for you that may help your son.
      If you have any issues let me know and I will try to help you, ask other professionals to give you answers or solutions.
      About toys, many times the one you make is better for them, although there are some educational toys that are very beneficial as well.
      There are some previous post that might be helpful for you to teach skills to your son called Video-modeling, just write it in the search box and it should pop up, it has 3 or 4 parts. it is easy to do it and you can teach just about anything to children.
