  • Mission:
  • Autism Action Partnership's mission is to improve the quality of life of persons on the Autism Spectrum and their families through education, advocacy and support, thereby enabling them to be an integral part of the community. The organizations vision is that every person touched by autism in the state of Nebraska will receive the care and support necessary to lead a fulfilling and dignified life.

  • Overview:
  • Autism Action Partnership (AAP) works to create and fund programs that fill critical gaps in Nebraska autism services. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention state 1 in 68 children in the United States are diagnosed with autism. More children will be diagnosed with autism this year than will all other developmental disabilities combined, underscoring the urgent need for increased and improved autism services in Nebraska. With the funding and support of AAP and the leadership of autism stakeholders in Nebraska, autism services across the state will grow and expand to meet the increasing demands for autism programs and services.

  • History:
  • Gail Werner-Robertson and Scott Robertson, the founders of AAP, laid the groundwork for the organization in 2000 when they began the GWR Sunshine Foundation. As the parents of two sons diagnosed with autism, they personally experienced the constant challenges and frustrations associated with finding adequate, cost effective treatment services, medical expertise, and basic educational support for their children. Determined that other Nebraska families would not have to endure the same struggles, Gail and Scott began their work to provide support to individuals with autism and their families across the state.
    Renamed Autism Action Partnership upon becoming a public not-for-profit foundation in 2008, AAP has taken major strides to positively impact the landscape of support available for individuals with autism in Nebraska. Since its inception, AAP has partnered with various autism service providers to increase diagnosis accuracy, improve behavioral treatment services, begin pilot projects designed to develop critical social skills therapies in schools. AAP also provides recreation therapy, family respite, and scholarships for individuals with autism to receive the services and treatments so desperately needed.
