Contribute to Autism Research

In the United States, autism affects 1 of every 68 children. And the number of those who are diagnosed every year is growing. We need answers. 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? And how do we help those who have it?

Donations through this Gift That Gives More™ pay for research into causes, prevention, and treatments for autism spectrum disorders.
