Unlocking Autism - United States

UA National Call Center 866.366.3361

Unlocking Autism, founded in February of 1999, grew out of a concern that children were being diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders at an alarming rate and yet the public was uninformed. Our primary mission for the organization is to bring the issues of autism from individual homes to the forefront of national dialogue. We strive to join parents and professionals in one concerted effort to fight for these children who cannot lift their voices to the nation for help. We work diligently to educate parents about pending legislation, existing laws, as well as biomedical and behavioral treatment options. We assist parents of newly diagnosed children by providing direction through our Parent 2 Parent Network and support hotline in an effort to network families across the country. We raise funds for biomedical research, behavioral research and projects. We work to increase society's ability to work with and understand people with autism. We strive to help those on the autism spectrum reach their greatest potential in leading fulfilling and productive lives in relationships, society and employment.
Description: Unlocking Autism's programs and projects include the following: The Open Your Eyes National Autism Awareness Project, Wings for Little Angels Flight Assistance program where donated miles are used to transport needy families and their children with autism to treatment facilities and physicians across the country, The UA State Representative Program, A National Call Center & Hotline (active 1/2003), The Power of ONE! National Autism Awareness Rally (held annually), Conferences and rallies held on state levels designed to educate families about the importance of media and the political realm in order to affect change in our community, The Parent 2 Parent Network, a Nationwide Public Service Announcement campaign, The Kidz Korner which provides families of children with autism with creative ideas for activities to increase family interaction and Media Outreach.
