Mission Statement

At Autism Speaks, our goal is to change the future for all who struggle with autism spectrum disorders. We are dedicated to funding global biomedical research into the causes, prevention treatments, and cure for autism, to raising public awareness about autism and its effects on individuals, families and society, and to bringing hope to all who deal with the hardships of this disorder. We are committed to raising the funds necessary to support these goals.

Autism Speaks aims to bring the autism community together as one strong voice to urge the government and private sector to listen to our concerns and take action to address this urgent global health crisis. It is our firm belief that, working together, we will find the missing pieces of the puzzle.

Autism Speaks. It's time to listen.


In the Carolinas, we are committed to raising funds for research, advocacy, awareness and family services for all those who suffer with autism spectrum disorders.

We have an Annual Walk Now for Autism Speaks at the Charlotte Motor Speedway in October where close to 10,000 folks meet in support of autism awareness. Please join us at www.walknowforautismspeaks.org/carolinas.

We also have a Light it Up Blue Gala in April in support of World Autism Awareness Day.

Please call the office at 704-561-0003 or email carolinas@autimspeaks.org for more information or to access one of our free tool kits.
