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 operates from eight locations across Queensland and one in South Australia
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!
