AEIOU is one of Australia’s largest providers of full time early intervention for children with autism aged from two and a half to six years.
It costs $40,000 to put one child through a year at AEIOU. This valuable program enables kids with autism to integrate into mainstream schooling and reach their full potential. Currently, there’s a $10,000 funding gap for each child’s placement at an AEIOU centre. For every $10,000 AEIOU raises, they can then leverage a further $30,000 of funding in Government support, therefore providing a placement for one child.
AEIOU was first introduced to us by their founder Dr James Morton and his passion and enthusiasm, combined with an extremely sound financial operational model, provided a compelling case for supporting an organisation which has helped so many Queensland families. That support has been ongoing for many years now with a number of members of the Epic Pharmacy team participating in one of the organisations core annual fundraisers, Take-A-Hike, and Stuart’s love of a good costume bringing plenty of additional opportunity for fundraising!
