The autism epidemic

  • Every 20 minutes—how often a child is diagnosed with autism
  • 30%—increase in the rate of autism; 1 in 68 children
  • 6 million—number of people living with autism in the US
  • 66%—percentage that costs can be reduced in a lifetime by early diagnosis and intervention
  • $3.2 million—average cost to raise a child with autism over the course of a lifetime.

There will be more children diagnosed with autism this year than diabetes, cystic fibrosis, cancer, cerebral palsy and AIDS—combined.

Autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) are a group of developmental disabilities causing major behavioral, communication and social challenges with symptoms typically present before age three. Long-term outcomes can be greatly improved with early identification and therapies. There is hope. There is help.

We believe that:

  • Autism is an environmentally induced medical disease.
  • Autism is treatable.
  • We can restore health.
  • We can optimize function.

The HealthyUNow Foundation, a nonprofit founded by Julie Buckley, M.D., a noted physician in the treatment of ASDs and parent of an autistic child, is dedicated to helping those with autism, and their families and is firmly committed to seeing the growth of the planned HealthyU Community.

Join us in making this a reality for more families in need.
