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. It does this through advocacy and support, increasing understanding and acceptance of people with autism spectrum disorder, and advancing research into causes and better interventions for autism spectrum disorder and related conditions. Autism Speaks enhances lives today and is accelerating a spectrum of solutions for tomorrow.
