In Wisconsin, at least one child is diagnosed with autism every day. Autism is now the most prevalent developmental disability - affecting more children than cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, hearing loss, and vision impairment. In fact, more children will be diagnosed with autism than with childhood leukemia, diabetes, and cancer combined.
Friends of Autism was established in 2000 as the only autism charity in Wisconsin dedicated to raising money to fund autism research, awareness, and education. Friends of Autism is powered by volunteers and relied upon by parents and professionals throughout the state.
We invite you to learn more about autism and our organization on the pages of our website. We’re hoping that you, too, will become a Friend of Autism.
