The Tackling Autism Foundation was founded by Scott and Ashley Jackson in 2009. Inspired by the incredible impact that autism therapy had on their son Tyler, they started Tackling Autism to help provide funds to families struggling to afford the high cost of intensive therapy. Over the last few year, the organization has raised over $150k through various events with an energetic all-volunteer staff. The funds have helped numerous families in the Houston, Orlando, and Atlanta areas. We have helped families afford months of therapy and paid for several families to attend autism friendly sports camps. It has been extremely rewarding for the organization to influence change in the lives of autistic children.

In 2012, the Tackling Autism leadership team elected to suspend operations to allow Ashley and Scott to focus on their family. The entire organization thanks all sponsors and volunteers that helped Tackling Autism to make a real difference in the autism community. We’d ask that all our supporters continue to fight autism by contributing to the efforts of the following organizations -
