The Parker Foundation
for Autism and Child Development

I am a Global Ambassador for and Co-Founder of The Parker Foundation for Autism and Child Development; a non-profit organization that my husband and I built together to enhance the lives of children and families touched by autism...Families like our very own! 

Over the past couple of years, I have had the opportunity to develop programs to help families directly, working to integrate families back in to the community in which we live and create an environment for children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD's) and related disabilities to realize and reach for their fullest potential. I've traveled across the U.S. and abroad to gain a better understanding of efforts for special needs individuals and their families around the world; my husband and I have visited Mexico several times bringing materials and supplies to local special needs schools and organizations. I am also a member of Autism Europe which is headquartered in Brussels, Belgium and fosters to over 30 countries across Europe. 

Our three programs are fully funded thanks to help from sponsors, supporters, volunteers, and individuals/businesses that provide their specialized services and facilities for our events for free or reduced cost. 

Current initiatives/programs are: Be a Buddy, Be Safe Be Prepared, Speak Through Sports, Speak Through Arts, Speak Through Education. For more information, please visit our website at - thank you!

Enjoy some of our photos from over the years!
