Donate to The Riley Center

The Riley Behavioral and Educational Center is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization currently offering services at or below cost to families struggling in Huntsville, AL, and the surrounding areas.

The prevalence of Autism, Pervasive Developmental Delay and other related disorders are currently at an epidemic level nationally, statewide and most alarmingly locally. Autism is the  nation’s fastest growing developmental disorder with a child receiving a new diagnosis every 20 minutes. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) recently reported that 1 in 54 children has been identified with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) according to estimates from CDC (Center for Disease Control-March 2014). ASD occurs in all racial, ethnic and socioeconomic groups. Autism is almost 5 times more common among boys (1 in 42) than girls (1 in 189). The CDC continues to track and monitor the increasing prevalence of Autism, Pervasive Development Delay and related disorders specifically in Alabama’s northern 32 counties. As suspected in previous CDC reports, the prevalence of autism spectrum disorders in  Alabama is higher with an  increase of 82% over the same 5-year period. This increase is nearly 1.5 times larger than the national average.

Your donation will allow The Riley Center to continue offering our services at or below cost to families and to extend these services to more children. No child should be denied the chance for an improved quality of life due to lack of treatment choices or economic restraints.

You may change this to your desired amount.
