Thanks to the funds raised nine years ago at the inaugural Magic Moments event, The Kennedy Center proudly opened The Autism Project - a program dedicated to providing comprehensive programs and services to families and children with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Today, because of the generosity of our donors, The Autism Project has served more than 450 families and become one of the leading providers in Fairfield and New Haven counties of these supports for children with ASD and their families.
 
According to the latest statistics, 1 in 68 children are 
diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder each year – a 30% increase over two years ago.  In Connecticut, there are an estimated 52,636 individuals who have ASD -- 12,000 under the age of 18.  With these numbers, the need for accessible program supports like those provided by The Autism Project is critical in helping children with ASD improve their quality of life and thrive in their community.
 
After nine years, Magic Moments remains the main funding source for The Autism Project. State funding is almost non-existent, and although we are very
thankful for the support we have, to meet the growing demand and to continue providing these critical program services at reduced rates, more is needed. 
 
From September 19 -26, The Autism Project is engaging the whole community in its fundraising appeal by introducing Kennedy Center Autism Week.  Four exciting events will be featured where children, families and adults have the opportunity to PARTICIPATE, have FUN, and SUPPORT accessible programming for the children and young adults with ASD in our local communities.
