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. We always presume competence.

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.
