Who We Are
However, all too often, the child with autism must go without vital interventions due to financial constraints.
ACT Today! strives to provide necessary services so that each child with autism can reach his or her highest potential.
ACT Today! is the brainchild of several passionate people who believe that access to early, effective treatment is vital for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders. Together with Dr. Doreen Granpeesheh, a leading provider of therapy to autistic children with over 25 years of experience, this group created ACT Today! in 2005 to do just as the name implies – take action immediately to treat autism. With an active board and a small staff, ACT Today! has steadily grown since its founding.
Not only does ACT Today! continue to distribute funds for treatment services but ACT Today! has also launched the first nationwide campaign to help military children who have autism as they have unique challenges. Military families must fight a war on two fronts, one overseas and one for their loved one with autism. This campaign is called ACT Today! for Military Families (ATMF).
In addition, ACT Today! builds awareness that effective treatments for children with autism do work. We do this via providing parental resources, news articles, blogs, and television appearances.

Because of new technology with implants, he is able to connect to an iPad and stream sounds directly to his implant in his right ear without his left ear hearing… MORE
