Sign the Petition to

Autism Speaks

We, the undersigned are adults with autism or have friends or relatives who are adults with autism.

We find that Autism Speaks, while being tremendously well known, does not address the concerns that adults with autism face on a daily basis.

We urge Autism Speaks to invest in our concerns and to become a reliable advocate for autistic adults.

We would like to see a change in the make up of Autism Speaks to include people who have an active diagnosis of ASD. This will ensure that the concerns of people with autism are heard from both the neurotypical and autistic perspective.

Signed,

Susanne Bal Balyemez
