WAAALK with me for our Champs

Our fundraising event, “WAAAlk for our Champs,” celebrates the milestones and achievements of our community affected by ASD. One day, I hope to become a doctor who can help provide guidance, treatments, and another voice for our loved ones, but I also wish to begin that journey now by WAAALKing with them in every way I can today.

With your support, the WAAA can continue to improve our education programs, access to treatments, and advocacy efforts to pursue change and opportunities bettering the lives of those with ASD.

Join me in celebrating and supporting our families! Your donations will help us support them. Every donation, small or big, is going to make an invaluable difference in their lives. Please take the time to WAAALK with us or donate!

Help fund the thousands of WAAA Families & Individual Advocacy insurance appeals, and IEP Supports WAAA provides

Thanks to the generosity of people like you, WAAA has been able to accomplish so much in the past year. We empowered 2,455 families through counseling, trainings and resources to secure treatment funding through private insurance and to secure effective services in public schools throughout the state. We made headway with the Office of Insurance Commissioner to issue regualtions on how insurance companies should cover autism spectrum disorders. We advocated for better training and a career path for para-educators as well as 1.256 million dollars in funding developmental and autism screening for toddlers suspected of having autism.

About Washington Autism Alliance & Advocacy

Washington Autism Alliance and Advocacy (WAAA) is fortunate to be a part of a community of organizations in Washington supporting families in unique ways. What differentiates WAAA is that we ensure all the services families depend on are funded in a meaningful way.

WAAA About image

At WAAA, we provide crucial resources while enhancing our community and advocate for implementation of key legislation to benefit the community.   WAAA provides the largest collection of resources available in the state to children and their families living with ASD.

We educate families on critical services and benefits for their children and provide access to a statewide resource directory. WAAA hosts specific training workshops, private counseling, and assessments. We review and evaluate Individualized Education Plans, school performances, analyze insurance plans and prescribed treatments, and assist with challenging and unlawful denials of insurance coverage. We pair families with an Advocacy and Resource Coordinator, who helps each family or individual to access the benefits and services they need and deserve which also includes assistance for Autistic adults and self-advocacy.

WAAA has worked since 2007 to remove barriers to insurance coverage of effective treatment for ASD in Washington State, and with the incoming Affordable Care Act transition and the critical support from the WA State Legislature, 2015 will be our most significant year yet.
