FAAN is proud to offer water safety grants to our local community.
The Hannah Ross Memorial Grant for Water Safety is available for any individual who has been officially diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder and resides in Humboldt County.
Drowning is among the leading causes of death of individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Water Safety is a crucial component to these children. Exposing children with autism to water safety can increase their familiarity with water and their understanding of safety hazards around water.
One on one water safety sessions can help a child with autism to improve their attention span, concentration, impulse control, frustration tolerance and ability to follow instructions.
This grant is currently closed.
