Let us help you.

There are two grants available through Autism Strong Foundation. Both grants emphasize our desire to support families in our community and offer a way for families to afford Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy. Founders of ASF, the Thoms family have seen firsthand the positive impacts of ABA therapy and want others to benefit from it as well.  In order to be eligible for either grant the applicant must be able to provide documentation of the following:

  • Current medical insurance

  • Household income

  • Medical diagnosis

  • ABA centers ability to provide information regarding number of hours, wait list or monthly billing statement

LANDON'S HOPE GRANT

Landon’s Hope Grant provides a child with autism the ABA therapy they need and deserve through a gift of therapy hours from ASF. This grant will be used to help meet insurance deductibles, co-pays and other out-of-pocket expenses.  If you are interested to be a recipient of this program, please click here.

PARENT TRAINING GRANT

The Parent Training Grant focuses on the parents of an autistic child who have been denied ABA therapy from their insurance company or are on a waiting list for services.  Through a gift of ABA therapy hours parents will learn ABA techniques from board-certified behavioral analyst (BCBA). With this grant, parent(s) must commit to two, hour-long sessions per week for up to four months.  If you are interested in applying to be a recipient of this program, please click here.

ANGELS 4 AUTISM

Every holiday season, we set out to impact as many families as possible through our Angels 4 Autism program. Individuals are able to be an angel to a child with autism by making a financial donation to cover the cost of a therapy tablet. Their generosity allows us to deliver therapy tablets loaded with specific therapeutic learning application programs to children with autism all across Charlotte for Christmas. 

Applications for Angels is Now Closed. Please check back in Fall 2019 for the next open application period.

Applications will be reviewed and those that meet the criteria will be submitted for grant selection.  Finalists will then be required to participate in a phone interview discussing availability, behavioral concerns, etc.  Grant recipients will then be notified.
