ORGANIZATION DESCRIPTION

Founded in 1991, the Association for Children at Risk (the Association) was created due to the lack of a proper educational-therapeutic treatment program for young children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The Association works in 137 educational settings (e.g., day care centers, kindergartens), treating close to 1,000 children with ASD. The Association’s Cohen-Harris Resilience Center provides treatment, counsel, development, training and research on preparedness, prevention, intervention and rehabilitation as well as in development of civilian resilience during traumas, crises and mass disasters on the local, national and international levels.

GRANT PURPOSE

The Autism and Resiliency Program will provide a trauma prevention and intervention program geared for the Autism community that will provide parents and children with tools and strategies to navigate through challenging times.

Thanks to the generous support from the Jewish Community Foundation of Los Angeles, our trauma prevention and intervention program geared for the Autism community will provide parents and children with tools and strategies to navigate through challenging times.
