Tell Congress to increase funding for autism research and support services!

Recent estimates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) — an agency within the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) — indicate that about 1 in 68 children have been identified as having autism.

Autism Awareness is urging Congress to double federal autism research dollars.

Your voice can make a difference! Please contact your US Representative and US Senator and ask them to:

  • double federal autism research dollars
  • increase support services for children with autism and their families

Thank you for joining the efforts of Autism Awarness to make a difference in the lives of children with autism and their families!
