Avenues for Autism and our many supporters honor the life of our organization founder, Robert Tyner. He was an amazing and generous man committed to making a positive impact in the lives of individuals and families affected by autism.
We’ve witnessed firsthand what individuals with autism can accomplish when limitations are removed. So we’re clearing pathways to support services, information, and financial assistance for those affected by autism–as well as their families and caregivers. In the process, we’re providing a roadmap for the avenues that lead to lives without limits.
Just beginning the autism journey?
Here’s a good place to start.
Autism and autism spectrum disorder (ASD) are general terms for a condition characterized by difficulties in social interaction, verbal and nonverbal communication, and repetitive behaviors. Autism is defined by a certain set of behaviors that affects individuals differently and to varying degrees.
Suzanne Tyner Autism Fund
We created the Suzanne Tyner Autism Fund to help offset financial costs for families seeking programs, support, or equipment not covered by traditional insurance or grants. Funding caps range from $750 for expenses such as equipment, camps, or social clubs to $1,500 for intervention programs and ongoing educational support.
Everyone affected by autism has unique needs and circumstances and, thus, should have access to various options for services. We’ve compiled a list of programs, services, and supports within our community that provide resources in their own distinctive ways.
