Why is AID for AUTISM different from
other autism organizations?
No one "owns" or profits from Aid for Autism, except the Autism movement itself. All the volunteer doctors and vendors who put their time
and effort into healing one family at a time, do so without making a single profit from
donations. In fact, their work is voluntary and completely donated too.
Think of this project as a “Pay it Forward” movement of sorts. Even the family who is seeking
aid also benefits the autism cause by the telling of their story to the public. They are tasked
with the job of letting their personal and private story be told online to a multitude of
internet savvy viewers. AID for AUTISM asks them to do this in return for the help that they
are receiving ‘free of charge’. The family’s job in this project is to be the mouthpiece, the
daily demonstrators of an implemented method for the recovery of autism. They are asked
to videotape everything—good, bad, and ugly days during the treatment course. This
candid look into the private lives of these families yields its own powerful voice. With such
weight attached to their plight and healing, this is the voice that will be taken to legislators
in order to affect the kind of sweeping changes required to recover all children with autism.
Helping one child,
one family at a time …recover
In a nutshell, AID for AUTISM has taken a medically naïve child and aligned them with a
top-ranking autism specialists and doctors who voluntarily oversee the child’s medical
journey toward recovery. This team of providers caters a protocol of therapies for this child,
based on this child’s presenting needs. AID for AUTISM then seeks out the recommended
services and therapies from vendors, who are given the opportunity to donate supplies and
treatments as a charitable venture. In doing so, they become part of the family’s website
vendor and provider list, with first-hand product reviews given by the family as they follow
treatment. This is an opportunity for vendors to put their money where there product
touting is—in real time, real life, ONLINE.
Because of the progressive nature of the medical interventions used in recovering children
from autism, it is necessary for families to document everything, daily and tediously. It is
a small price to pay considering the changes families begin to see materialize right before
their eyes in their children.
With this challenge—Affecting real progress in a child with autism—doctors, patients and
donors of funding and services see things change right before their eyes—video and blog.
By getting the word out, by rallying politically for each family, the face of autism will begin
to transform to one of real hope AND medical healing…

As a participant in this project, YOUR donation monies are NOT collected simply to
benefit someone else’s pocket by way of mark ups on products that must be bought, or
consultations with doctors (at exorbitant prices) that must be paid by AID for AUTISM on
behalf of the family. NO. Instead, AID for AUTISM appeals to physicians and vendors to
give to the project—to be recognized for doing so on the merit of good will on the AID
for AUTISM website. And doctors and vendors love that they can help and be charitable at
the same time. How more credible is a doctor or vendor’s work when it is done completely
without charge. This kindness repays itself in more ways than one.
Donated monies are used to pay for services that cannot be bartered, and only in cases
when no other options exist. These expenses include insurance deductibles, sometimes
airplane fare (with heavy discounts from airlines and only after any donated airline miles
are exhausted); sometimes hotel stays at conferences where the aid family is requested to
share their story (where again hotel discounts and miles programs have left a money gap
that must be met); gaps in website development and production costs (often material
costs to companies donating time and manpower) to get the news about true autism
recovery options told; and other such expenses that must be met, but which are generally
negotiated to be as low as possible. AID for AUTISM goes out of its way to find charity
from all service providers wherever possible. And, so many businesses are anxious to help
and receive recognition for doing so, as well as tax credit. They too seek to be part of the

One year ago, a tearful Mom and Dad wrote down the ten greatest desires they had for their son, Julius. Their anguish was reflected in the simplicity of what they wrote. These dreams, wholly unattainable, were sealed in an envelope.
Today, tearful parents unsealed that envelope and where shocked to see… (more)

Do you really know about Autism?
These children suffer from the world’s worst headache and stomachache, with chronic explosive bowel problems. An adult with these symptoms would see their doctor immediately begging for relief. But because many of these children have communication problems, we send them to psychologists and therapists first. But if you were in pain, why wouldn’t you... (more)
