Happy New Year from all of us here at Autism Speaks!

As we turn the page on another year, we are overwhelmed with gratitude for everyone in the Autism Speaks community. Thank you for supporting us in person and in spirit, allowing us to remain steadfast in our commitment to promoting solutions across the spectrum and throughout the life span for people with autism and their families.

With 85 cents of every dollar funding innovative research, advocacy, programs and resources, we are committed to doing the most good for the most people impacted by autism. Here are just some of the ways we’ve made progress together in the past year:

  • Contributed to the discovery of a previously hidden type of genetic influence on autism, illustrating how changes in an unexplored area of a person’s DNA can affect predisposition to autism. 
  • Engaged 16.3 million people and 172 countries during World Autism Month, driving increased understanding and acceptance of people with autism. 
  • Successfully advocated for medical insurance coverage of autism care in two more states, thereby bringing the total to 48 states that now have insurance coverage for autism treatments.
  • Championed ABLE savings accounts for people with disabilities, including autism. These tax-advantaged accounts, currently available in 40 states and the District of Columbia, now total more than $144 million in gross contributions. 
  • Launched new for easier access to interactive tools, expert advice and personalized resources for more than 1.5 million monthly visitors. 

Each of us at Autism Speaks is dedicated to enhancing lives today and accelerating a spectrum of solutions for tomorrow, and we can’t do it without you. We send our sincere wishes for a happy, healthy 2019, and we look forward to another strong year together!

Warmest regards,
