About Hope 4 Hanna
Hope 4 Hanna was started in May 2008 by its founding board members: Justin Alderson, Kristen Alderson, Joshua Belden, and Lene` Belden. The inspiration for their vision is Johanna (“Hanna”) Belden, who was diagnosed in October 2006 with Autism Spectrum Disorder shortly after her second birthday.
The mission of Hope 4 Hanna is to help create a less challenging road for families dealing with the disorder. Once diagnosed, every child with autism faces a set of new expectations and responsibilities including, but not limited to behavioral and biomedical interventions, occupational and speech therapies, dietary restrictions, individual education planning, specialized playdates and socialization classes. The families have the task of introducing these new schedules and interventions into their homes, while trying to maintain normalcy.
