Autism, a life-long neurological disorder, has reached epidemic proportions over the last decade. Today 1 in 151 children and 1 in 70 boys – one percent of the American population – is now on the spectrum of Autism.  Since merging with Cure Autism Now, Autism Speaks has become the nation’s largest autism advocacy organization. Last year, Autism Speaks raised over $38 million to support groundbreaking genetic research; community, national and global autism awareness efforts; and programs to support those with autism and their families.
