We provide free parent training, educational evaluation, advocacy training, resources and small grants to families with children affect by autism. We have a theraputic center in Barlad, Romania and work with families internationally as well.

Since it is not realistic for the Foundation to provide even modest financial and hands-on technical assistance to all of the families affected by autism, even in the US, the Foundation focuses on a two part plan, with both prongs aimed primarily at the youngest children with autism.

In working with autistic children it is crucial to begin providing proper care, nutrition and technical assistance at the youngest possible age. The greatest impact on such children can be made by age six, and unfortunately it is difficult to diagnose in most cases before eighteen months of age. By working with these children the Foundation can provide the greatest benefit to the most people with any given amount of funding to the Foundation, and also train parents at an early and vulnerable stage how to be more self-sufficient and ask better questions of caregivers.

Both components of the Foundation’s strategy build not only on the expertise of Tracy Woodall and the platform she has developed, but also on the Foundation’s learnings from working under the most difficult conditions with Romanian orphans in an institutional setting inside their own country at Cristi's Outreach Foundation.
