October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month 

This month's Community Connections is all about celebrating moms and sharing experiences. We heard from hundreds of mothers across the country who shared their most memorable and heartfelt experiences with their children with autism – from hearing their child say “I love you, Mom” when they never thought they would, to a young man's move into independent living.

Autism Speaks is pleased to announce that we have redesigned the way you can search for the scientific research grants we have funded! Please click on the link below to be redirected to our online Science Grants Search. We hope you find this to be an easy-to-use and valuable resource in sharing our science research investments with the autism community.

  1. What is the Autism Clinical Trials Network?
The Autism Clinical Trials Network is a network of 8-13 medical centers collaborating on clinical trials for autism. The centers in the network collaborate on a single trial with each site recruiting children for the trial (multi-site, single protocol trial). This means that recruitment goals can be met faster, decreasing the amount of time it takes to complete a trial to screen and develop new treatments.

How can I apply to become an ATN site?

Autism Speaks' Autism Treatment Network (AS-ATN) is a collaboration of treatment and research centers dedicated to improving medical care for children and adolescents with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). AS-ATN sites are selected through a competitive grant application process and currently are funded for up to three years.
