This year marks 10 years of progress since Autism Speaks first opened its doors in 2005. As we move into our 11th year our goal is to significantly enhance autism services in every community and push to get the groundbreaking ABLE Act , now the law of the land, implemented in all 50 states. Our dedicated field teams will be the ones heading this effort. Thanks to the passion and generosity of our community, Autism Speaks has helped advance our understanding and treatment of autism in ways almost unimaginable ten years ago.
Improvement is accomplished through scientific research, advocacy, awareness, and family service programs. Remember, this isn't just a faceless organization. There are many families right here in the Concho Valley that are helped in many ways by Autism Speaks. Check out how you walking can help with the video below:
