How this will help

Every 11 minutes, a child is diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder. 1 in 88 children in the United States is on the autism spectrum; 1 in 54 boys.

We advocate for inclusive health insurance coverage, vital research, early intervention and treatment, and life-long support and necessary services for individuals with autism and their families.

We call on President Obama and Congress to develop and implement a comprehensive national plan to address autism.

Our 1 in 88 can't wait!Autism Speaks. It's time for the President and Congress to listen.- See more at:
