"My brother is my daily motivation and inspiration. I never had to pick a platform for a pageant, my platform was decided the day my brother was diagnosed with autism."

"His comment was 156 words long. It had nine exclamation points. He said Phelps was his idol and lookalike. He said he was hoping to swim in the Olympics 'just like you someday.'"
On the afternoon of Aug. 16, Austin Levingston logged into Facebook and visited Michael Phelps' official page. He wanted to pay his respects. Days earlier, Phelps had capped his Olympic career with his 23rd gold medal. He had gone to Rio de Janeiro and won another race. It was, he said, the last of his competitive career.

A touching letter...
"I know today may have left you with so many different emotions. My parents had those same feelings when I was diagnosed with autism when I was 4. But my parents were able to get through that day and so will you. You will become a champion for your child and their greatest advocate they will ever have."

It's time to listen
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.
