Founder of Autism Unity. After beginning of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February of 2022
Autism Unity was started as a relief mission in response to the critical condition of Ukrainian families with children with autism. In April of 2022, with great support from the community, Autism Unity became a fully formed 501(C)(3). The main goal is to ensure that Ukrainian children with autism and their families have access to sufficient high quality therapeutic services and supports. Raised in former Soviet Union, Dmitriy attended high school in Kyiv, and his family is from Kharkiv, Ukraine. He is also a father of a child with autism. With his own personal encounter with life’s circumstances and understanding the importance of supporting children with autism, it is his desire to take part and strive for a change.
