The EA in EAsolutions means Emerging Autism Solutions
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is the fastest-growing childhood disorder in America. A recent study published in the American Academy of Pediatrics Journal confirms that one in every 59 American children, including one in every 42 boys born today will be diagnosed with autism. ASD is a complex neurological disorder and its taking a toll on school districts, communities and families across the nation. The impact is felt significantly in un/under served communities, where both diagnosis and services are delayed two years on average. That is particularly significant because while there is no cure for autism, there is hope; early intervention has proven to help minimize its long-term effects. Two years without valuable therapies can be the difference between a child growing to someday lead an independent life living on their own or leading a life on permanent assistance from institutionalized care. This is the reality for thousands of special needs families everywhere, especially in underprivileged communities where knowledge of autism is most often limited and resources are unknown.
EASolutions is responding to the crisis of autism, especially in those under-served communities, by developing educational forums, advocacy training workshops, intervention programs and specialized learning opportunities for parents and caregivers of special needs children, skill assessment and acquisition. EASolutions was founded in Central Ohio in 2015 by Angela Ramos Fields in honor of her son, Grant. Grant was diagnosed with autism in 2005 at the age of 4. At the time Angela knew very little about autism and even less about how to help her son cope with this disorder. Because of the experiences, Angela is better equipped to recognize what types of programs, training and services other families raising a child with autism can use to their benefit.
