About The Color of Autism Foundation

Who We Are

We are a Non-Profit 501(c)3 organization committed to educating and assisting African American families with Autistic children.

Autism affects children of every race, ethnic group and socioeconomic status. African-American children are frequently confronted with late diagnosis or misdiagnosis. African American Autism Support is vital to the development of underserved children.

Our goal is to help families identify the warning signs of autism early on. We can start to overturn these disparities by helping African-Americans with autism reach their full potential. We empower families with information on autism that they can use to advocate for services for their child.

Our Mission
