Making an Impact!

“We are incredibly proud to be part of the Flutie Foundation family! As parents of a child with autism, we felt it was important to give back those families who are also impacted by autism, but may not have the means or access to support their child or young adult on the spectrum. The Flutie Foundation provides assistance in an immediate and impactful way for those families and makes a real, tangible difference to their everyday lives and helps improve the trajectory and future for the kids and young adults with autism.


An Extraordinary Conversation

The "Full Of Life" blog is a place where we celebrate families affected by autism who are living life to the fullest and offer tips and tools for daily living.  We often invite guest bloggers to join the conversation. Do you have a story about living life to the fullest? Email us at and your blog submission could be featured!

Once the clock struck 2:01, Sam would suddenly stop, my father would put him down, and they would return downstairs. He did this routine every day for years and years. Sam had to be home for 2:00, making us plan our day around it. I would repeatedly ask my parents about Sam’s routine.
