ABOUT NAA

The National Autism Association was founded in 2003 with the mission to educate and empower families affected by autism and other neurological disorders. First and foremost an advocacy nonprofit, NAA educates society that autism is not a lifelong incurable genetic disorder but one that is biomedically definable and treatable. For the last six years, NAA has raised public and professional awareness of environmental toxins as causative factors in neurological damage that often results in an autism or related diagnosis. One of the largest member-based autism organizations in the country, NAA encourages those in the autism community to never give up in their search to help their loved ones reach their full potential.

The organization has five programs:

  • Helping Hand Program: provides financial aid to families affected by autism

  • FOUND: a program designed to combat wandering-related deaths by providing funding to Sheriff offices for Project Lifesaver Equipment
  • Progress Research: a fund directed towards impactful research studies
