Mission Statement

Autism Awareness advocates for children with autism spectrum disorder and their families.  We educate our community about autism spectrum disorder, and mobilize political support for autism research and services to help children with autism and their families.  We are a principled voice for the dignity of every child and committed to helping every child with autism spectrum disorder realize their full potential.

What we do

Autism Awareness is a grassroots organization working to improve the lives of children with autism spectrum disorder and their families through awareness and political action.

We address through the political process some of the most pressing concerns for children with autism and their families, such as the need for increased autism research and expanded services to help children with autism realize their full potential.

Thanks to the support of friends across the country, we’re establishing a tremendous record of success:

  • The Autism Awareness message is being communicated through direct mail, the telephone and the internet, helping reach more and more people with information about autism spectrum disorder.
  • Autism Awareness is educating and mobilizing voters from coast-to-coast, calling on Congress to increase federal government funding for autism research and expanded services to assist children with autism.
  • All of our efforts are in partnership with our supporters, without whom our efforts would not be possible.  By working together, we’re creating a grassroots movement, to make a difference in the life of every child affected by autism spectrum disorder.
