Hope it helps, we believe fr while now my son has smaller case of autism I know there's a term but I'm very tired n seen this so had to comment, my son we found out at young age was born without 11-14 of his adult teeth just never grew no pods nuttn there he will hve to hve dentures eventually plus now at 19 we find out he has an open bite thts soo severe his mandible bone/bottom jaw bone is continually growing upward towards his scull causing open bit to get worse now he's gonna hve to hve a surgery to do bone replacement of certain bones on each side of face. I wonder if any of this has to do with this. Soo scary. Tryin to get docs to retest him fr autism to c if he had been misdiagnosed since five with adhd is like pulling my own teeth with pliers.thy just won't cooperate n since nine now he has seizures too.

Introduction
About Us
Autism Speaks was founded in February 2005 by Bob and Suzanne Wright, grandparents of a child with autism. Their longtime friend Bernie Marcus donated $25 million to help financially launch the organization. Since then, Autism Speaks has grown into the nation's largest autism science and advocacy organization, dedicated to funding research into the causes, prevention and treatments for autism; increasing awareness of autism spectrum disorders; and advocating for the needs of individuals with autism and their families. We are proud of what we've been able to accomplish and look forward to continued successes in the years ahead.
 
Mission
At Autism Speaks, our goal is to change the future for all who struggle with autism spectrum disorders.

We are dedicated to funding global biomedical research into the causes, prevention, treatments, and cure for autism; to raising public awareness about autism and its effects on individuals, families, and society; and to bringing hope to all who deal with the hardships of this disorder. We are committed to raising the funds necessary to support these goals.

Autism Speaks aims to bring the autism community together as one strong voice to urge the government and private sector to listen to our concerns and take action to address this urgent global health crisis. It is our firm belief that, working together, we will find the missing pieces of the puzzle.

Autism Speaks. It's time to listen.
