We all know of someone touched with autism, The ratio of 1 child with autism in every 88 births means that autism can happen to anybody and any family. Autism is a developmental disability that changes a child's life forever. There is no known cure for autism. Parents often hope for the best.

My email to you is to seek support for the EJ Autism Foundation. The mission of this non-profit is to support autism based programs on Long Island, NY, so that children on the spectrum receive the autism services they need. Currently, these autism programs struggle to meet the needs of these children. A child with autism must be in a 1:1 learning environment to progress. This ratio is not financially supported by the government, forcing autism-based programs to rely on funding for autism from small non-profits like EJ Autism Foundation.

Every child deserves the opportunity to learn - even children with autism. Help me support autism and awareness by making a donation. If you're hesitant to donate because autism is not happening in your backyard, be grateful and help support those who struggle with autism everyday. Opening your heart and supporting a child with a developmental disability gives parents hope and offers the child a more hopeful future.

Feel free to browse this website for a personal and informative look at autism. The motto "Fight the Mystery" is intended to inspire anyone who works with, teaches, lives with, or parents a child on the spectrum. Thanks for your support of autism!

All the best,
