Supporting Those Affected by Autism Since 2014

Spring Forward For Autism is a nonprofit working to provide emotional and financial support to ease the strains on those affected by Autism Spectrum Disorders. We support families by connecting members of the Autistic community, empowering and inspiring others, raising public awareness to foster advocacy, and furthering access to available resources.

Right here in Brevard County, Florida hundreds of families deal daily with the care and management of a child with autism. The cost in terms of stress, exhaustion, emotional distress and financial drain is great. To lessen this burden and help families deal with raising a child on the spectrum, organizations like Spring Forward For Autism are working together to provide the resources and support needed.

AUTISM

This neurodevelopmental disorder is characterized by impaired social interaction, verbal and non-verbal communication, and restricted and repetitive behavior. Parents usually notice signs in the first two years of their child’s life. These signs often develop gradually, though some children with autism reach their developmental milestones at a normal pace and then regress. The diagnostic criteria require that symptoms become apparent in early childhood, typically before age three.

WHY SUPPORT?

Lifetime costs of someone living with Autism range from $3 to $7 million.

Few parents can afford to directly pay for the costs of continual, lifelong individualized treatment for a single autistic child.

The Cost of Living on the Spectrum
The cost for care of a child with autism must be estimated on both direct and indirect costs for the child’s medical, behavioral, and educational programs.
