The WHY for ASI-

Michael is a little boy with a world filled with love, self guided rigid order, not much interest in communicating or even acknowledging others, and heartbreakingly painful reactions to louder sounds.  The individuals ASI helps don't exactly fit into definitions. Your support equips individuals like Michael to have access to the therapies, education and support he and his family need to thrive. Michael is helped by the Autism Society of Indiana (ASI)

Costs of lifetime autism care can be overwhelming for an individual or family. These lifetime costs can often be reduced by 66% with early diagnosis, supports and proper interventions. Autism services cost U.S. citizens $236-262 billion annually. More than 3.5 million Americans live with an autism spectrum disorder.

Autism is the fastest-growing developmental disability. Prevalence in the United States is estimated at

1 in 54 births.
