Michael Ebbels – Supporting Autism Spectrum Disorder and the Local Community

May/26/2021

The Equate business is invested in supporting Queensland families and communities, supporting people to be the best version of themselves, and to make a difference doing things they love.

This weekend, we’re supporting one of our Principal Security Consultants, Michael Ebbels running on Sunday 30 May for the AEIOU Foundation and a cause close to his heart – Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

About six months ago, Michael’s son, Lucas, was diagnosed with ASD.  “It’s taken a while to get an official diagnosis, especially as he’s only 6 years old and in Grade 1. Now we’re able to access support through their school and the community, and we’re involved in that as much as possible,” said Michael.

The AEIOU Foundation believes all children with autism should have access to early intervention, and the opportunity to participate meaningfully as part of an inclusive society. With one in 100 Australians being diagnosed with autism, they are on a mission to help children with autism live their best lives.

The Ebbels family are continually invested in their community through volunteering work at the school, helping with food parcels and a variety of other initiatives locally.  Donate to this cause and support ASD.
