Even though autism is in our name, we represent children of all disabilities.  We are a 501c3 nonprofit corporation with the State of Missouri.  We help parents get the education and skills they need to advocate for their children with the public school system.  We are a source of information to find the right service providers, doctors and therapists to make the progress your child needs to get a quality education so they can reach their potential and strive along with their non-disabled peers. 


A Scholarship program for low-income parents for the services of our educational advocate.  Our board applies for grants so that our advocate only charges minimally for services so they are more accessible to parents ($35/Hr) where most advocates charge between $80 – $150/hr.  The advocate can help parents with Medicaid, Social Security and other federal program applications and processes.  We have bi-yearly events that are free to children events that are free to children with disabilities and their families.  Our corporation is not faith-based.  We are attempting to secure funding in order to offer future temporary assistance to pay for therapies while parents are in the approval process for other programs.
