Experienced Autism Alliance is dedicated to providing assistance to families with children and adults with Autism through charitable means.
Experienced Autism Alliance’s mission is to link families within the Autism
community with the resources they need to enrich their lives
I'm a military wife, mother of 3 boys, ages, 17, 15 and 14. My youngest son is non verbal and severely Autistic. In 2006, My son was diagnosed with autism. At the time, there was not many resources available in one place. Throughout the years I have noticed a lack of centralized resources in the autism community. As a mother of 3 children, 2 being "typical" and one having special needs along with being a military spouse, life can be a little hectic. I learned how balance and having a good support system has kept me sane throughout the years . But not everyone is as fortunate as I am. That is why having a community support system is so important to me. I love helping people, working in the community and volunteering. Developing Experienced Autism Alliance has always been a dream.
My name is Amanda Grozdanic, I am a licensed & registered Occupational Therapist in multiple states with over 10 years experience. I graduated from the University of Oklahoma with a bachelor’s degree in Health & Exercise Science & Master’s degree in Occupational Therapy. I worked for a nonprofit hospital as an outpatient pediatric therapist while doing interim work as a home health therapist for a small contract company. Additionally I assisted with program development, mentor, & training in a smaller clinic. Currently my focus is working in aquatic therapy & outpatient therapy services for children with disabilities while on the side continuing home health work. I am therapeutic listening certified since 2009 as well as certified in Sensory Integration & Praxis Test (SIPT) since 2012. I have extensive experience in treating adults/geriatrics & children of all ages with a variety & complexity of diagnosis from handwriting issues to severe cognitive & physical limitations.
When I am not working I enjoy spending my time on the beach, hiking, camping, paddle boarding, creating art, salsa dancing, volunteering around the state, & hanging out with my dog Jasmine.

My wife Tanya and I have dreamt of having our own organization to promote, educate and support families of the autism community. Experienced Autism Alliance is that dream. I believe strongly in supporting and addressing the needs of the WHOLE family. While serving in the Army for 24 years, I've learned that the only way to overcome a problem is as a TEAM! Tanya, Amanda and I believe that Experienced Autism Alliance (EAA) is a roadmap for families to help navigate the world of autism.
