Programs: We provide funding directly to scientists doing cutting-edge autism research to discover the causes of autism and develop better treatments.We also provide information to the general public and support the needs of individuals with autism and their families.
We launched an awareness campaign to encourage brain tissue donation so scientists can investigate the neural underpinnings of autism spectrum disorders.
ASF advocated successfully for a new medical classification code for autistic wandering, which became possible after the ASF-funded wandering study published in the journal Pediatrics.
ASF board members and staff are frequently sought after by major national media (CNN, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, USA Today, etc) to comment on autism related issues.
