WHY WE ADVOCATE?
Often times many people diagnosed with autism and their families go unheard, not just the population that are non-verbal, but anyone on the autism spectrum. This is often due to the lack of education, awareness, understanding of legal rights and navigating through complex language and systems. Additionally, resources and services may be out of reach for certain communities. Appropriately advocating for individuals on the autism spectrum and their families will drastically improve their outcomes. Jaden’s Voice will work with families in their time of need to ensure their voices are heard and their needs are met.
Obtaining a job for a teen or adult with autism can be difficult, even if you have the necessary skills and experience. Applicants with autism are often over looked by employers because they may not make direct eye contact during the interview process and are challenged in social settings. We work to expose employers to national autism resources through training and certification to help them better understand and appreciate autistic candidates.
JADEN'S VOICE CARES
Jaden’s Voice Cares provides support for families affected by Autism Spectrum Disorders during life events. Our program helps families to cover costs associated with critical expenses related to the well-being of the family member diagnosed with autism on a case-by-case basis.

SOCIAL SECURITY & HEALTHCARE
There are a number of financial resources for children with autism, including social security benefits. Proof that your child’s needs are severe enough to interfere with their social interactions, communication and imagination are required to determine eligibility. We can assist you in applying for Social Security and other healthcare services to receive the assistance your child needs.
