Autism is one of the fastest growing developmental disorders in the U. S., affecting 1 in 44 children. And, 1 in 6 children has a developmental disability or delay.
More than 231,000 children across Missouri, including the St. Louis region, stand to benefit from life-changing services at the Thompson Center for Autism & Neurodevelopment at the University of Missouri, but the demand exceeds current capacity.
We are proud to be a part of Give STL Day 2023, powered by the St. Louis Community Foundation. Your support will help fund the expansion of space and increased staffing of specialists to meet the needs.
Make an early donation and help kickstart our goal to raise $20,000 and make a difference in the lives of people affected by autism and neurodevelopmental disorders. Make a gift today.
Double your impact! Thanks to a generous match from Nestlé Purina PetCare, all donations will be doubled up to $10,000.
