Our mission aggressively addresses the wide gaps in our educational and social systems and aims to drastically increase the number of autism-focused educators and therapists into a marketplace that desperately needs them. Autism MVP is helping children and their families with autism in several ways:

  1. By funding university-led research projects and initiatives, such as the Autism Program Improvement Project with Monmouth University.

  2. By partnering with leading universities with autism-focused programs to provide scholarships for graduate students committed to pursuing a career in working with individuals who have autism

A CRITICAL SHORTAGE OF AUTISM-FOCUSED EDUCATORS AND THERAPISTS

Autism is a serious neurological disorder that can impair an individual’s ability to communicate, socialize, focus and learn. Although there is no cure, various therapies can help individuals on the autism spectrum show dramatic improvement to help them reach their maximum potential. The autism diagnosis rate in the U.S. is staggering- 1 in 59 children born today is on the autism spectrum. That figure equates to roughly 150 new diagnoses a day and approximately 50,000 children with autism entering our school systems each year.  The challenge is that there are simply not enough educators and therapists to work with children with autism. 

It is estimated that 90% of people on the autism spectrum are unemployed or underemployed. By increasing the number of educators and therapists in the marketplace, we will help more children on the autism spectrum reach their maximum potential and make a significant impact in our communities. But we need your help, please support our mission and donate today.
