OAR is an excellent non-profit. For some families of individuals with autism, it is an essential first stop after they hear a diagnosis. The same goes for educators, law enforcement, and other professionals looking to learn about autism and foster acceptance within their community.

— Adult Self-Advocate

As the parent of an individual with autism, I have been impressed and helped by OAR’s commitment to disseminate evidence-based information through OAR’s Web site, resource guides, and monthly e-newsletter. I regularly recommend these resources to other caregivers, teachers, and therapists. It is wonderful to have an organization like OAR providing information we can trust!

—OAR Donor

I think what makes OAR special is the thought they put into every decision. Everything is personal, and every decision is made with the best interests of the people they’re serving: parents, professionals, military members, self-advocates, and families. They know that wading through research when you already have a lot on your plate isn’t easy, so they try to streamline the experience of parents and educators. They just… get it. Which is why their resources and fundraising just make sense and end up being so helpful. [They’re] the first place I’d send someone looking for autism resources, information, and fundraising opportunities.

—OAR Volunteer

A charity like OAR doesn’t succeed on its own.

We rely on people’s generosity, time, and assistance to help fund research studies, produce and distribute guides and more.
