At NAA NYM, we are parents, grandparents and professionals whose lives have been affected by autism. Just like you, many of us live with autism every day. Autism is an epidemic, affecting 1 in 68 children and 1 in 42 boys nationwide. We know the challenges that autism brings to a family, the emotional difficulties, and the financial stress. But we also know hope and healing… victories both big and small.
NAA NYM strives to support your family on its journey to help your family member with autism reach his or her fullest potential and advocate to make heard the voices of our many loved ones who have been silenced by autism. We endeavor to provide comprehensive information concerning potential autism causation (including environmental factors), treatments and therapies, medical and biomedical therapies, nutrition, homeopathy, educational interventions, financial planning, tax issues, and everything in between.
In addition to our seminars and workshops for families and professionals, we: offer grants to families who otherwise could not afford treatment; host special events; and sponsor a summer program to provide a safe and supportive environment for children with autism to have fun.
