Brad Buechler and his family originally set out to raise a little money for autism research in St. Louis, but rather than give the money to a national organization, they formed Action for Autism, a nonprofit agency that helps families in his area pay for services for their children with autism. Buechler, who has two grandchildren with autism, said the organization's long-term goal is to establish a school that serves children with special needs throughout high school.
