Help fund global research into the causes, prevention, treatments, and a cure for autism.
Autism affects 1 of every 68 children, 1 in 42 boys, and is the fastest-growing developmental disorder in the United States.
In any disease or disorder, there are four basic questions to investigate:
- What is it?
- What causes it?
- How do you know if someone has it?
- How do we make it better?
Autism demands answers for each of these questions. All are priorities. Autism Speaks® has garnered its resources and organized its research program to pursue each of these avenues simultaneously. Their mission for research: "to improve the future of those struggling with autism spectrum disorders by funding research and developing resources that will accelerate discovery, development, and dissemination of methods for prevention, treatment, and cure."
