About this organization






The Autism Science Foundation provides funds to scientists and organizations conducting and disseminating autism research. We also serve to increase societal awareness of autism spectrum disorders and the needs of families raising children with autism.


In 2018, the Autism Science Foundation (ASF) awarded over $350,000 in autism research funding for predocs, postdocs, undergrads, and collaborative consortium activities, including the Autism Sisters Project. ASF built a new online tool to help researchers study the single-gene forms of autism and registered over 1,500 people for the Autism Brainnet and communicated with families across the US about the importance of postmortem brain tissue research. The organization also disseminated a new policy brief on employment needs for people with autism and presented these data at the International Society for Autism Research. ASF hosted its fifth annual Day of Learning, bringing scientists and families together to discuss key autism topics, including sex and gender differences, diet, medical marijuana, and adult outcomes. It also raised a record $350,000 at its annual Ride Far Bike event. ASF supported an expanding baby siblings research consortium, enabling the group to better understand early features of autism and develop biomarkers to diagnose autism before behavioral symptoms emerge.
