The number of children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) in Canada continues to grow at a troubling rate. Today, one in 66 children are diagnosed.
Society and government are struggling to provide them with the support and intervention services they need. It can take up to two years for a diagnosis and another two years to have access to treatment in the public system. The public system cannot keep up with the demand, and Miriam Foundation is committed to filling the gap.
We continue to have a big impact in the lives of individuals with autism spectrum disorders and neurodevelopmental disorders and their families. The key is early intervention on a comprehensive scale, while at the same time providing clients with a continuum of services, from helping adults find employment to residential care.
These services are critical but can be prohibitively expensive. We cannot do it without your help. Your gift will continue to support services, research and excellence that will improve the quality of life of individuals with autism spectrum disorders and neurodevelopmental disorders.
Your support has a bigger impact than you think.
With growing needs and limited public resources, your support is essential in making the Miriam Foundation an impactful stakeholder in all spheres for people living with neurodevelopmental disorders. Promoting the well-being of our community by taking care of each individual through a customized approach is at the heart of our success. Help us keep moving forward by developing personalized strategies and expanding our residential, health, and leisure services.
