Autism Speaks is dedicated to promoting solutions, across the spectrum and throughout the life span, for the needs of individuals with autism and their families. We do this through advocacy and support; increasing understanding and acceptance of autism spectrum disorder; and advancing research into causes and better interventions for autism spectrum disorder and related conditions. Through partnerships and collaboration, we are committed to: • Increasing global understanding & acceptance of autism • Being a catalyst for research breakthroughs • Improving the transition to adulthood • Ensuring access to reliable information & services throughout the life span • Increasing early-childhood screening & timely interventions
AUTISM SPEAKS was founded in 2005 by Suzanne and Bob Wright, grandparents of a child with autism.
Merging with three leading autism organizations and building upon their legacy, Autism Speaks has made extraordinary advancements: increasing global awareness of autism; advocating access to care and support; and funding research that has resulted in a better understanding of the breadth of the autism spectrum.
With our supporters and partners, Autism Speaks addresses every stage of life, through Science, Family Services, Advocacy and Awareness
