Make a difference NOW.

 Autism is a neurological disorder which severely impairs a child's communication and social interactions. Unable to learn from the natural environment as most children do, the child with autism shows little interest in the world or people around him. While all children with autism develop some normal and even advanced skills, they exhibit a wide range of behavioral deficiencies and excesses. Some behavioral symptoms of autism include:

Left untreated, autism inhibits a child's developmental growth to such a degree that most will require lifelong support. Under its broadest definition, autism affects one in 500 Oregon children. While many etiologies are known to cause some types of autism, to date, there are no known preventions nor cures.

Kind Tree Productions, Inc. is a small Oregon nonprofit, all volunteer organization. Officers and board members include home managers, direct care givers, parents and specialists in the field of autism. Hundreds of hours are volunteered by community people to help with the float in the Eugene Celebration Parade, the small library, the Art Show, the seminars, the quarterly newsletter, the award winning web site, the support group, the twice yearly community oriented fun fund-raisers, and the unique Summer Autism Retreat. Area businesses are generous in their support through donations of food, equipment, computer components for the ongoing computer exchange program, and more.

Nearly 100% of the funds raised have gone into creating the special events and other activities that raise awareness, educate and entertain. Kind Tree, and the people who help us, work to bring people with autism closer to the world, to bring the world closer to people with autism, and to have a lot of fun in the process.

Board members at Kind Tree believe each of us is a member of the Human community, deserving of the same respect we feel for ourselves. All of us need a little help one way or another. We offer that help out of respect for ourselves, as much as out of respect for others. And through the giving, we each receive.
