They shared a common vision and set out on a singular mission, which is to apply science to answer the daily questions and challenges that autism presents to individuals with autism, their families, teachers, and caregivers.
The Autism Science Foundation

This organization provides information about autism to the general public and serves to increase awareness of autism spectrum disorders and the needs of individuals and families affected by autism.
