What is Autism?

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a developmental disorder. The range and severity of symptoms can vary widely. Common symptoms include difficulty with communication, difficulty with social interactions, obsessive interests, and repetitive behaviors.

Organizations We Are Connected To

The Tony Snell Foundation proudly collaborates with a network of organizations that share our commitment to raising awareness and providing support for our cause.

Learn the Signs

Learning the signs is crucial. It's one of the top things you should do.

What To Do When Newly Diagnosed

This guide provides initial steps and advice for individuals who have recently received a diagnosis, helping them navigate the new journey ahead.

Our Mission

Bring awareness to the diagnosis of autism

Our mission at Tony Snell Foundation is to foster understanding and acceptance of autism within society, with a particular focus on supporting minorities on the spectrum.

We aim to highlight the importance of early diagnosis and intervention, and strive to make these crucial therapies more accessible, despite the challenges of cost and long waitlists. We believe in the power of community and collaboration, and work tirelessly to connect with groups and individuals who can help us make a difference.

Through advocacy, education, and direct support, we are committed to creating a world where all individuals with autism can reach their full potential and live fulfilling lives.

Our Focus

Empowering Minorities on the Autism Spectrum

Our biggest focus is on minorities on the spectrum and learning how we can help. We are committed to understanding the unique challenges faced by these communities and finding ways to provide support and resources.

LET'S DRIVE CHANGE

Understanding the Challenges

We are committed to learning about the specific issues that minorities on the autism spectrum face. This includes cultural and linguistic barriers, disparities in access to healthcare and educational resources, and a lack of representation in autism research and advocacy. By gaining a deep understanding of these challenges, we can develop targeted strategies to address them.

Advocacy and Representation

We believe in the importance of representation and advocacy. We strive to ensure that the voices of minorities on the autism spectrum are heard in policy discussions and decision-making processes. We also work to increase their representation in autism research, to ensure that the interventions and therapies developed are suitable for all individuals on the spectrum.

Collaboration and Partnerships

We understand that we cannot do this work alone. We are actively seeking to collaborate with other organizations, community groups, and individuals who share our mission. Through these partnerships, we aim to amplify our impact and reach more individuals who need our support.

In all our efforts, we are guided by a vision of a world where all individuals on the autism spectrum, regardless of their cultural or ethnic background, have the support and resources they need to thrive.
