About Autism Cares Foundation:
Linda and Frank Kuepper established the Autism Cares Foundation, a 5013c charitable organization, to provide life-enrichment activities for people with autism at no cost to family members. Over the years they have created much more than a network of families: they have built a community support system that benefits all family members. The goal is to provide a fun, safe, loving supportive environment where those in the Autistic spectrum could make friends and thrive. The children need early intervention services and do not outgrow Autism. These children often lack friends and fun, since they are usually not included in birthday parties, social gatherings and other curricular activities.
People are afraid and often misunderstand the autistic behaviors, flapping, shrieking and other quirks; and exclude these children from events. The money raised by Autism Cares Foundation provides outings, physical fitness programs, arts and crafts, holiday parties, social dances, all at no costs to families. The Autism Cares Foundation’s technology center is where people with autism are taught by trained volunteers how to use an iPad and specific applications that enable them to learn and communicate, providing another way to be heard and understood. The iPad has been used to overcome a major challenge for the people with autism who do not speak a larger issue to tackle is what will happen when you are no longer able to care for your child with autism?
