Who We Are

American Autism & Rehabilitation Foundation, (AARF) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides therapeutic services, events, and support to the lives of children, adults, and families affected by various special needs conditions. We are dedicated to serving families, children, and adults with all types of congenital and acquired neurological conditions such as Autism, Asperger’s Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome, ADD/ADHD, sensory processing disorder, and more.To accomplish these goals, our highly educated and passionate pediatric specialists focus, not only on the therapeutic aspect of healing, but real issues that cause family structures to break down, leaving the special needs child lost in the shuffle. The majority of a special needs parent’s time is spent coping, keeping their child safe, getting them to and from therapy, and providing hygiene, even into adulthood. Sadly, their focus shifts from other children in the family, leaving them vulnerable to outside forces, loss of self-esteem, isolation, etc.Due to these despairing and heart-breaking issues, AARF puts great emphasis on supporting the family as a whole by hosting events such as sibling support groups, “My Time-In”, parent support groups, “My Time-Out”, summer camps, “Camp S.A.I.L.”, “Sensory Friendly Trick or Treat”, “Moments with Santa”, “Special Needs Resource Fair”, “Paws for a Cause Walk”, and many more. These events not only assist families with day-to-day issues, but many of them raise funds to be infused back into the community to assist with life changing therapy, medical equipment, education, support, and acquiring service animals, just to name a few.No parent should ever have to face the day when they are forced to send their child to a group home. American Autism & Rehabilitation Foundation provides the support and resources to try our best to keep that tragedy from ever becoming a reality, giving hope to every family with a special needs child; hope for their child’s future; hope that they too, become happy, healthy, and productive citizens, thriving in their community.You can make a difference for the special needs community. Donate today.

Message From Our President

My name is Kevin Mohler and I am President of American Autism & Rehabilitation Foundation. Thank you so much for your consideration of supporting AARF. You are truly making a difference and AARF values your support tremendously.

We have been working hard since the beginning of 2020 to raise funds to support the special needs community through various community events and services, as well as the financial needs of the American Autism & Rehabilitation Center to continue it’s exceptional impact on the special needs community. We appreciate each and every one of our donors and we wouldn’t be where we are without your support. Together, we have provided meals for children with special needs, rebuilt destroyed fences of an autism center in Mobile from the hurricane, have contributed financially to opening a special needs private school in Baldwin County, and so much more.

With your contribution, we have rebuilt a playground for children with special needs that was destroyed in the hurricane, fully supported a school for special needs children, and provided more treatment for children with special needs in our community. Your recent gifts go towards these much needed projects and will help us further our impact on children with special needs.

If you have specific questions about how your gift is being used, or you want further information on how to continue your support, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I am available by email at KevinM@americanautismcenter.org or you can visit our website americanautismcenter.org.

Thank you,

Kevin Mohler
