Scholarships for Autism Care & ABA

Below are some of the organizations that provide scholarships for Autism Care & ABA therapy. This is not an exhaustive list.

National Autism Association

The National Autism Association is a non-profit organization that aims to respond to the immediate requirements of the autism community. Moreover, it seeks to help individuals affected by autism so that they can develop their potential to the highest level. Additionally, the association works tirelessly to create awareness about autism and its treatment options.

UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation

The UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation, a non-profit organization, plays a crucial role in assisting families who face financial challenges by covering the treatment expenses of children with autism. Specifically, this foundation understands the needs of children who may not receive the necessary treatment due to the lack of health insurance coverage. By providing financial support, the UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation helps families adequately fund the required treatment, thus preventing them from falling into debt. Furthermore, the foundation actively collaborates with healthcare providers to ensure that children with autism receive comprehensive care.

ACT Today!

Autism Care and Treatment (ACT) Today! is a national nonprofit organization that aims to spread awareness about autism treatments and provide help to those who need it most. Additionally, it provides funds to families who require financial aid for their children’s treatment. This organization not only assists children with autism in accessing the required treatment therapies but also supports them in reaching their full potential. Led by Dr. Doreen Granpeesheh, a leading therapist in the treatment of children with autism, ACT Today! has a separate campaign called ACT Today! for Military Families (ATMF) that focuses on supporting military children with autism. ACT Today! actively promotes awareness about successful autism treatments through various channels such as blogs, television, and news articles. Furthermore, it collaborates with research institutions to advance knowledge in the field of autism treatment.

Autism Family Resources

Autism Family Resources is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing financial help to families of children with autism. This foundation was established by parents of a child with autism who understand the emotional and financial stresses faced by these families. Notably, Autism Family Resources aims to alleviate these burdens by offering financial assistance and essential items required for the treatment of children with autism. Many of the prescribed items from physical, occupational, or other therapists are often financially challenging for families to afford. Therefore, this organization provides funds to enable families to purchase these items, ensuring the safety and development of children with autism. Moreover, Autism Family Resources actively collaborates with community organizations to expand its reach and support network for families in need.

Parent Waitlist Program


November 02, 2023 | 12pm-1pm PDT

Journey to Independence

Community-based program designed to support families on waitlist

Being an RBT for me was extremely fun because where were you going to find a place where you can be completely silly without having to worry what people thought about you? This was the only job that made me feel like I could make a dramatic difference while being myself.

I also liked to be surrounded by people that had the same goals of wanting to help kids and the teamwork made the job much easier and more enjoyable.

Change and progress was the ultimate goal for our kiddos. The early intervention program was seriously only a miracle because I saw changes in the kiddos that from day one, you wouldn’t even recognize who they were.

Changes from being able to utter 3-4 words where they can only make a syllable from when they started, the behavior decreases in which kiddo that used to engage in 30-40 0 self-harm to only half, learning how to wait during games, table work where they use to swipe and drop to the floor if they had to.

My favorite was when the parents would tell us what amazing progress they were making at home. I used to tear up and felt for these parents so much because it was already difficult for them and now, they can trust and rely on ABA and the therapists knowing their goal was ours.
