Partnership

The Fragrance Foundation’s Give Back partnership will support NEXT For AUTISM, co-founded by the 2019 Game Changer, Laura Slatkin.

Mission

NEXT for AUTISM transforms the national landscape of services for people with autism by strategically designing, launching, and supporting innovative programs. We believe that individuals with autism have the potential to live fulfilling, productive lives when supported by excellent services and connected to their communities. We continually ask, what’s next for people on the autism spectrum?

Statistics

1 in 59

1 in 59 children are identified with autism in the United States

.5 Million

An estimated half-million individuals with autism will enter adulthood in the next decade.

21 Years of Age

At 21 years of age, young people with autism fall off a services cliff. They no longer qualify for intervention from schools, yet are in critical need of support in order to go onto productive, fulfilling lives.

Objectives

To Reimagine Autism Services

NEXT for AUTISM challenges assumptions and accelerates change by designing and supporting model programs for people on the autism spectrum and their families.

To Envision a Different World

– In our world, individuals with autism live fulfilling and meaningful lives
– They are supported by excellent services that empower them to thrive.
– They have equal opportunities in our workplaces, businesses, and communities.

To Be Change Agents

We take risks with bold ideas, refine our designs, and incubate new programs. While we focus on creating programs to meet the needs of those living on the autism spectrum, our intention is nothing short of disrupting current thought and practice.
