SOUTHFIELD, MICHIGAN – Autism Alliance of Michigan received a grant in the amount of $50,000 from Community Foundation of Southeast Michigan.  The grant is intended to support a pilot program of Michigan Family Autism Navigator which helps families of young children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder.

The Autism Alliance of Michigan was founded in 2009.  It’s mission is to lead collaborative efforts across the State of Michigan, improving the quality of life of individuals diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder.  The Autism Alliance of Michigan is providing education, comprehensive services, coordinated advocacy as well as a wide range of community inclusion efforts.

Dr. Colleen Allen, president of Autism Alliance of Michigan,  said:

“We are extremely grateful to Community Foundation of Southeast Michigan for recognizing this critical need in the autism community and we are looking forward to a successful partnership in launching this important service.”  Dr. Colleen Allen reminds the community that families are frequently confused by what is available, where to go, and even knowing the questions to ask along the way, especially those from low income regions of our state.”

Bringing education to the community about Autism Spectrum Disorders as well as working with families with a child who has been diagnosed on the autism spectrum is key in for the future growth of everyone. For more information on the program and ways you can help , visit or call 248-436-5606.
