Mission Statement

Our Mission

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.

Autism Speaks' Walk Now for Autism, the nation's largest grassroots autism walk program, is our signature fundraising and awareness event, taking place in communities across the United States, as well as in Canada and the United Kingdom.

Powered by volunteers and families with loved ones on the autism spectrum, this successful grassroots fundraising effort not only generates vital funds for autism research but also raises awareness about the increasing prevalence of autism and the need for increased research funding to combat this complex disorder.

Would you recommend Autism Speaks?

by Eragon S. from NJ (2014-07-06 13:58:08.0)
Not sure I have the best memory, so not a very likely, but my memory will have to do for a likely, if only I could remember….uhhhh. The cause of this organization is more than just notable, or caring for a group of people. Their aim has soared against what people today are used to, or what they can believe possible. The goal of Autism Speaks is more than crazy, its awe-tistic, meaning it's inspiring, it's wonderful, and it's meant to help a group of people in an unimaginable way. They're changing the world in more than a small step, their impacting a whole entire group of people, who are taken to badly, so what, all people are created equal; right? So…, these people need a life which is fair, a life that they want, or at least what we want for them to have, aka the best we can possibly give. So recommending a group people trying to help another group of people in such a way that will benefit the group at a disadvantage, is something worth recommending. Thank You Very Much, Awe-tistic!
