The early years of development are a critical time period for every child to learn skills that will serve them throughout their lives.
The QuickStart Early Intervention program is helping to provide early identification and therapeutic interventions for toddlers up to 24 months of age who are showing signs of autism. This program is funded 100% by QuickStart Early Intervention for Autism through donations and fundraisers. We receive no government funding.
Since it began as a pilot project in 2013, the QuickStart program has seen great success. Last year the program funded 36 children at a cost of $144,000.
QuickStart families commit to weekly appointments over a 4 month period. Parents also commit to spending at least 2 hours daily to apply the strategies they are learning, as well as keeping a log of interactions to measure progress.
The number of children and families is growing. We want to continue to deliver this program.
However, we cannot do this without your support.
Please consider making a donation today. Thank you making a difference!
