Mission: Our mission has its single focus - autism. We provide up-to-date information to parents concerning the nature of this affliction, coping with and assisting the autistic child and reserach into the cause(s) and potential cures of autism.

Autism International organizes the annual AutismOne conference in Chicago IL, during the week prior to Memorial Day. It is the most comprehensive autism conference hands down. It has sessions on every topic to help families from OT strategies, to special ed law sessions, to the newest research in the autism world.
The conference goes so far beyond a typical conference offering childcare provided by renowned therapy designers at the Autism Treatment Center of America, to free pampering sessions at their spa night, to an amazing gala dinner.
The exhibitors and presenters are top notch, they stream the sessions online for free and the conference is organized by volunteers, so operates on a tiny tiny budget when compared to massive national organizations spending millions on just marketing.
AutismOne this year was free to attend. This is exactly what a non-profit should be about, providing maximum benefit to the community and families with minimal running costs. They are an amazing organization, started by parents, for parents.
