The Katydid Foundation, Inc.

One in 68 babies is born with autism each year, according to the Centers for Disease Control. That means more than 1 to 1.5 million American children need some type of support for life. The good news is the growth of services and programs for infants, children and teenagers afflicted with the disorder. But resources have not caught up for adults. When an individual turns 22, few programs are geared for someone with the unique needs of those on the autism spectrum. In most states, government funding is not mandated as it is for children and adolescents. But progress is being made in many states with more individualized funding and self-determination. These policies allow individuals and their families to craft a lifestyle where they can become active members of a community. Learn More
