Founded in 1965, the Autism Society has been the nation’s leader in serving people affected by autism, their families and professionals. The Autism Society has worked to raise autism awareness and improve the lives of everyone affected by the syndrome. Our work includes increasing public awareness about the everyday issues that people affected by the autism face, advocating for proper services and treatments for individuals across the lifespan and providing the most recent information concerning treatment, education, research and advocacy.
For 50 years, the Autism Society has hosted the largest conference on autism spectrum disorders each July. We bring together individuals with autism, their loved ones and professionals from multiple disciplines from across the country with a range of experiences and needs, creating a wonderful and unique opportunity to learn, network and share ideas. We founded National Autism Awareness Month, which helps focus attention on autism in April of every year. The United States recognizes April as a special opportunity for everyone to educate the public about autism and issues within the autism community.
