Linking families and individuals with autism to services, care, support and learning resources for more than 10 years.
Autism Speaks is dedicated to helping families find answers through funding research and education efforts and most significantly by spearheading the development of a national registry of autism patients. The lack of such a registry makes research all the more difficult and costly. We are committed to assembling a significant central database of children with autism that will provide for the first time the standardized medical records that researchers need to conduct accurate clinical trials. We believe this will facilitate the large-scale studies and clinical trials that will improve the effectiveness of treatment and eventually help lead us to a cure.
