Hunter Connect Families Inc

Energise 4 Autism

The Need

The prevalence of children living with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) has increased over the last 2 decades. The greatest challenge for someone with ASD is social interaction.  On a daily basis, a school environment is full of numerous and complex social interactions.  This creates anxiety and will often mean a child with ASD will withdraw, or become excluded from school life.

How We Help

Hunter Connect Families assists children with ASD through intervention services to:
  • Increase their confidence in social situations;
  • Reduce their likelihood of becoming marginalised and isolated;
  • Maximise their schooling and subsequent employment potential;
  • Reduce their likelihood of becoming dependent on welfare; and
  • Improve their connectivity within our community.

How You Can Energise 4 Autism

You can help children overcome the affects of Autism by asking your friends and family to sponsor you to make a  healthy change for one month.  For example: Eat healthier food, drink healthier fluids, and/or exercise.

Or you can simply make a donation. Your sponsorship/donation can help as follows:
  • $50 - Will help one child learn a new skill to socialise
  • $100 - Will help two children overcome a fear at school
  • $1000 - Will fund an after school program for one term to assist 10 children to interact
  • $100,000 - Will fund a full social development program for 12 months for 40 children and change their lives forever.
