Abstract

Autism Speaks is the largest national, private autism organization, founded in 2005 by Bob and Suzanne Wright. Through mergers in the last three years with Autism Coalition Research and Education (ACRE), National Alliance of Autism Research (NAAR), and Cure Autism Now (CAN), Autism Speaks has a collective history of over 30 years of autism experience. Autism Speaks has grown into the nation's largest 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.
