Sanjay Shah and Autism Rocks

When you hear that your child is diagnosed with autism, it can become as a shock to most who aren’t exactly sure what it is nor how to fix it. With autism, there is no cure. It’s a neurological condition that takes research and work. It is definitely something that cannot be fixed but there are certain things that can be done to help cope with the condition better, as well as understand it better. It is definitely manageable and with the right help people can most definitely cope with it better.

The charity that is moving the charts to create quite an outlook on autism is called Autism Rocks. It was created by millionaire and hedge fund manager Sanjay Shah. He has had his fair share of owning companies and knows what it takes to continue with the success of running a business, however, this is his first charity and it has been quite the success. The charity is especially close to his heart as well as his family’s heart because of their youngest son Nikhil. He was two years old when they found out he has autism and it came as quite a shock to the family. Shah had heard of autism but never really understand what it was. He wanted to get to know autism better, and have a better understanding of the disorder. He began his research, and after an afternoon visit and a cup of tea with Snoop Dogg, he had an epiphany. He would found his own charity company where concerts would be staged by famous musicians to help raise money for the cause.

Autism Rocks launched in 2014 and became quite a hit. They were able to raise a lot of money to help aid in the research and development of autism as well as raise awareness for people. They educated on what people should be looking for as well as different programs that can be beneficial. Universities have received some of the funding for their programs that help families as well as patient learn how to better understand the condition and the effects of it.
