Give a family affected by autism the in-home support they need to help their child's development.
Kids with autism are amazing -- but their unique needs and behaviors offer real challenges for their families. All too often parents have feelings of guilt, grief, and inadequacy when it comes to caring for kids on the spectrum. Unfortunately, many families find it a struggle to bridge the gap between the benefits gained in a therapeutic setting and daily life in the home.
Support for these families is essential.
GreaterGood.org partners with St. David's Center for Child & Family Development to provide in-home support services for families with a child or children on the autism spectrum. Their family support practitioners and graduate-level interns spend time with parents and children at home, focusing on building skills. They work in collaboration with other St. David's Center staff to ensure that critical goals from the day treatment program transfer to the home setting.
You can help. Your caring contribution helps provide this exceptional support for a family living with autism.
