We, the Organization for Autism Research, believe in the value of teaching today’s youth about autism spectrum disorders. Children who learn about the disorder develop better relationships with their peers with autism. OAR has helped educate more than 135,000 children through the Kit for Kids peer education program since 2012. This year, we are expanding our commitment to educating students by awarding grants ranging from $500-$5,000. These grants will support projects that aim to promote autism awareness and acceptance among students in grades K-8 using OAR’s peer education program.
