Scholarships and Donor Wall
Imagine never hearing your son or daughter speak. Not hearing "I love you, mom" or "Hi, daddy." For many families, that is a potential reality when their child receives a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder or another developmental disability.
As a non-profit organization, Touro is committed to keeping rates low and we accept many insurance providers. However, many children need multiple therapies many times per week in order to reach their full potential. This can be financially burdensome to families even with two incomes and insurance coverage.
We created a Scholarship Grant Fund for families who either cannot afford services, have high co-payments, or need a therapy that is not covered by insurance. Donations to this Grant Fund make a significant difference to many families at the Center.
Your tax-deductible gift will support families for whom treatment costs are prohibitive. Help other parents hear their child say I love you or run and give them a hug.
We have a limited number of naming opportunities available for our treatment rooms, consultation rooms, observation room, lobby, and offices . These naming opportunities give donors a way to make a powerful and enduring impact for our children and their families, right now and years down the line, transforming their lives forever. You just might find that it changes you, too. Create your own life-changing legacy today – donate now.
Throughout the year, the Center hosts several events (Season of Lights, Basketball Clinic, Light It Up Blue, and Building Blocks) which can use donations of money or in-kind gifts such as basketball jerseys, games, and gift cards. Donate today!
Games, Toys, and Supplies
The Center utilizes a variety of games, toys, art supplies, and other materials during therapy sessions and diagnostic testing. Donations are always appreciated to help offset the cost of these items.
Jessica Goor and Alivia Grimm
Twice a week, Jessica Goor drives from Laughlin to the Sharon SigesmundPierce and Stephen Pierce Center for Autism and Developmental Disabilities (CADD) with her daughter Alivia. Alivia, who turns 5 in December, was diagnosed with moderate-to-severe non-verbal Autism with global developmental delay when she was 3.

Sammy is now doing things his father Silvio Mateo never thought he would see.“The basic stuff that we take for granted” said Mateo. Like responding to his own name.
