What You're Running For

The Autism SpectRUN was started three years ago to help support The Kennedy Center Autism Project in its efforts to provide affordable comprehensive program supports for children with autism and their families. With little state funding, The Autism Project depends mainly on dollars raised through fundraising events, donations and grants.

Our GOAL this year is to raise $50,000. These dollars allow The Autism Project to meet the demand for quality program services for ALL families. 

The Autism Project Story

Twelve years ago, The Kennedy Center started The Autism Project with the simple recognition that a growing number of children with autism were facing a shortage of available and accessible program supports.  

Today, The Autism Project has become one of the leading providers in Fairfield and New Haven counties of high quality comprehensive program services for children with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and their families. 

Program Services include:

Ongoing social activity groups for children and young adults, teaching age-appropriate social, communication and life skills.

Family programs for respite and parent/caregiver & sibling support.

Recreation and Enrichment programs, including programs in the arts, science, cooking, and Healing Water's Swimming Lessons.

Workshops and Assistance with information on services and resources for both families and professionals.

Other needed programs and services, such as in-home behavioral services, after-school, summer and transitional programs, and professional trainings.

The Cindy Dworken Memorial Scholarship Fund to provide financial assistance to low-income families.
