With prevalence rates for Autism at an all time high, the need for financial assistance has never been greater than it is today. The cost to care for a child with Autism is astronomical, upwards of $1,000,000 across the lifespan. While some families have access to the treatments their children need via medical insurance, others do not. This creates a gap - between the cost of services and what families can afford. Our iGAP program is designed to help bridge that gap for families, allowing them to access services that their children desperately need.

At The Next Step Academy, over 90% of our families are receiving some form of iGAP assistance. With your help, we can continue to provide resources to our community, and make positive life change possible for children and families, who need it now more than ever before.
