REACT Foundation stands for Resources for Autistic Children’s Therapy. While there are other excellent organizations that are focused on research to prevent and cure autism, REACT Foundation is dedicated to raising awareness and financial support to the families and therapy teams already involved with children diagnosed with autism. The initial chapter is Orange County, California, but the Foundation hopes to expand over time.
While there is no known “cause” for autism, one thing that all parents and professionals agree upon is that early intervention is the key. With services comes great expense. We at REACT Foundation feel that our focus is helping already diagnosed children NOW by providing funds to help manage a huge educational challenge, both in school districts and privately.
Financial support will be raised and distributed in an effort to support children and their teams in many ways, including:
· Providing funding for necessary teaching materials and equipment to schools and programs in need that are directly supporting children with autism. (Click Here for current REACT Programs).
· Providing funding to public schools, non-profit educational programs and parents to attend trainings and conferences in the leading areas of support and research to children diagnosed with autism. We feel this is important as it is the teachers, teaching assistants and families that spend the majority of time with children. (Click Here for current REACT Programs).
· Provide scholarships to families in need of services for their children that they cannot afford.
· Provide a source of latest information on treatment, including areas of speech and language, occupational therapy, and social behavior intervention through our newsletter
Autism is a spectrum disorder and it affects each individual differently and at varying degrees. By learning the signs and diagnosing early, most children can benefit from early intervention treatment. We at REACT hope to make this a little easier.
