Nothing can be compared to a parent hearing their child say I love you for the first time, or seeing their child make their first friend, or learning how to get dressed independently. For many children with autism, learning these and other simple, but meaningful, skills could take thousands of hours of therapy, a team of dedicated clinicians, and a loving family.
Arizona Autism United has provided therapy and services to thousands of individuals with autism and their families since 2006. The mission of Arizona Autism United is to help as many families as possible with individualized supports.
When an individual is diagnosed with autism, it affects the entire family. This is why Arizona Autism United’s focus is to treat and support all members of the family. We have programs that address the needs of the parents and grandparents through parent training and behavioral coaching. We also have a program dedicated to siblings who are a critical part of the family as a whole.
Your donations are critical
With 1 in 64 children in Arizona diagnosed with autism, it is challenging to keep up with the demand for our services. We need to continue to expand and grow our programs and locations to reach underserved communities.
Treating a child with autism can cost approximately $70,000 a year for comprehensive treatment. This is without a doubt, not accessible for families of middle and low income level.
Donors like you can really make a difference for families living with autism. Your donation can be the funds a family needs to teach their child to say I love you, or the reason a child learns how to interact with peers to make their first friend, or the avenue for a family to teach their child living skills like getting dressed independently. You can be the caring heart that gives a parent the opportunity to attend a parent training course or a sibling the ability to interact with other siblings of children with autism.
In an effort to expand our reach to underserved families in pursuit of our mission, AZA United has big plans for expansion. We need your donations more than ever to open centers in locations where quality comprehensive treatment can be made available to families living with autism. Be the champion that makes this possible!
