  • Mission:
  • AEF opens schools, holds conferences, hosts workshops, conducts research projects, and raises funds to assist in generating education and support groups for social skill development, academic advancement, and sensory integration for children and adolescents diagnosed with Autistic spectrum Disorders, AD/HD, and Non Verbal Learning Disorders. We are a leading non-profit organization creating lasting changes in the lives of children in the United States and around the world.

  • History:
  • AEF is a leading non-profit organization creating lasting changes in the lives of children in the United States and around the world. Many of these children have been diagnosed with Autism, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Asperger's, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Non Verbal Learning Disorder, etc.

    These children are average to above average intelligence and are physically normal in appearance. But their learning styles and social communications delineates their need for an alternative teaching program.

    AEF provides services specifically catering to average to above average intelligence children and adolescents who are not being successful (or not being as successful as they should be) in traditional public and private school environments.

    These children are currently being "left behind." We are defined by our commitment, accountability, innovation, and collaboration. Our work takes us into the heart of communities where we provide services and disseminate information and knowledge to children, families, professionals and the general public.
