The Alexis Miranda Foundation (AMF) is a nonprofit corporation organized solely for educational and charitable purposes, and operates within the guidelines of section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
The foundation was established to help increase Autism awareness globally and to support families and providers of children with learning disabilities. The Alexis Miranda Foundation (AMF) is committed to enhancing the quality of life for individuals and families impacted by Autism and other disabilities.
To provide comprehensive professional services to children who are affected and help them reach their maximum potential and thrive in their communities. We intend to help families with advocacy and provide educational, therapeutic and recreational programs. The foundation is privileged to have dedicated personnel and volunteers who work tirelessly to ensure the families and children dealing with Autism have the support they need.
We believe that with proper information and education we will be able to dispel the stigma associated with Autism and other disabilities. We believe early detection and intervention is crucial to making great strides in the development of any child on the spectrum. We believe by assisting families of people with Autism on how to get the necessary professional help; we can make an impact in the lives of these children. We believe each child has a unique ability and it is our duty to help them recognize that and excel.
In 2002 our beautiful and sweet little girl was diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. It was a difficult time for our family but the love and support for each other kept us going. We had to find ways to help her reach her full potential. We enrolled her in a school that uses Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and with the help of an amazing team of therapists and doctors she has made great strides. In our visits to other parts of the world we realized there was a lack of awareness and the necessary support to help other children like ours with learning disabilities. We then embarked on this journey to raise awareness and ensure that children with learning disabilities get the support they need to reach their full potential, and ultimately make positive contributions to their communities and the world as a whole.
