Contribute to Autism Research

Autism affects 1 of every 68 children, 1 in 42 boys, and is the fastest-growing developmental disorder in the United States.
Help fund global research into the causes, prevention, treatments, and a cure for autism.
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, most importantly, How do we make it better?
Autism demands answers for each of these questions. All are priorities. Autism Speaks® has garnered its resources and organized its research program to pursue each of these avenues simultaneously. Their mission for research: "to improve the future of those struggling with autism spectrum disorders by funding research and developing resources that will accelerate discovery, development, and dissemination of methods for prevention, treatment, and cure."
Autism Speaks. It's time to listen®. Your contribution pays for research into causes, prevention, treatments, and cures for autism spectrum disorders through Autism Speaks, the largest autism research and advocacy organization.
About Autism Speaks
Autism Speaks was founded in February 2005 by Bob and Suzanne Wright, grandparents of a child with autism. Their longtime friend Bernie Marcus donated $25 million to help financially launch the organization. Since then, Autism Speaks has grown into the world's leading autism science and advocacy organization, dedicated to funding research into the causes, prevention, treatments and a cure for autism; increasing awareness of autism spectrum disorders; and advocating for the needs of individuals with autism and their families.
