Without the wealth of information and support we were fortunate enough to gather from our founding members and partner organizations we would not have been able to conquer our son’s initial autism spectrum disorder. He is now well on his road to recovery.
Although ABA (Applied Behavior Analysis) therapy is proven to be effective when done intensively and under the guidance of a competent consultant, we could not afford such a therapy. We had to make a choice which was to heal our son’s body first thanks to our DAN! (Defeat Autism Now!) and doctor Jeff Bradstreet, Founder, Medical Researcher and Director of ICDRC.
As a stubborn mom who never gave up on recovering her son, I did not take no for an answer and I sincerely hope that I can contribute to making a difference in our community. I have made it my goal to “pay back” those deserving non-profit organizations so more families affected by autism can be helped.
With much hope and dedication to our cause
The mission of the National Autism Association is to educate and empower families affected by autism and other neurological disorders, while advocating on behalf of those who cannot fight for their own rights.
We will educate society that autism is not a lifelong incurable genetic disorder but one that is biomedically definable and treatable. We will raise public and professional awareness of environmental toxins as causative factors in neurological damage that often results in an autism or related diagnosis. We will encourage those in the autism community to never give up in their search to help their loved ones reach their full potential, funding efforts toward this end through appropriate research for finding a cure for the neurological damage from which so many affected by autism suffer.
OUR MISSION: Open windows of hope for children with developmental disorders.
OUR VISION: Positively impact children’s lives by meeting their biological, behavioral, and nutritional needs.
Jeff Bradstreet, MD and Dan Rossignol, MD are fellows of the American Academy of Family Physicians.
Our focus is evaluating and treating patients with autism spectrum disorders, PDD, and related neurological and developmental disorders. We assess the underlying medical problems most commonly seen in children with autism through the use of measured biomarkers.
Dr. Bradstreet is also the Founder and Medical Director of the International Child Development Resource Center in Melbourne, FL.
Autism One is a nonprofit, charity organization started by a small group of parents of children with autism. Parents are and must remain the driving force of our community, the stakes are too high and the issues too sacred to delegate to outside interests.
AUTISM IS A PREVENTABLE/TREATABLE BIOMEDICAL CONDITION.
Autism is the result of environmental triggers. Autism is not caused by "bad" genes and the epidemic is not the result of "better" diagnosis. Children with autism suffer from gut bugs, allergies, heavy metal toxicity, mitochondrial disorders, antioxidant deficiencies, nutritional deficiencies and autoimmune diseases - all of which are treatable.
SUPPORTING FAMILIES AND PEOPLE WITH AUTISM
The Autism Trust’s focus is on building inspiring, sustainable and real futures for the many children with autism today. Why is this needed?
The pressure faced by parents and carers of children with autism as they approach adulthood is extreme.
The impact on society if we fail to address this will be even greater tomorrow.
The Autism Trust has been created to address this need.
Be part of building the Autism Trust.
Help us build a future for children with autism... Buy a brick today, build their tomorrow.
Heart of Sailing teaches sailing to special needs children as a form of recreational therapy.
The charity was founded in 2004 by George Saidah, a successful software entrepreneur who was motivated by his personal experience with a loved one with a cognitive disorder. A sailor for more than 40 years, Saidah dreamed of combining his love of the ocean with service to the community.
From inception, it has relied upon the generosity of volunteers, donors, and sponsors as Heart of Sailing does not charge a fee for the child participating in the Daysail program.
We are a not-for-profit organization designed to support the efforts of a collaboration of surfers, volunteers and sponsors dedicated to bringing the sport of surfing to families and children affected by autism.
At a SFA event, our surfers are provided a safe environment where two to four highly skilled and trained surf instructors carefully guide them into waves. Our surfers and their families are treated like rockstars and enjoy a day filled with a range of activities including stand up paddle boarding, kayaking, live music, face-painting, games, bounce houses, fire engine tours and much more..., all at no cost. These events are examples of inclusion at the highest level.
The Autism One Conference, the National Autism Conference and the DAN! (Defeat Autism Now) Conferences educate more than 100,000 families every year about prevention, recovery, safety, and change.
