Autism Speaks has received such positive feedback about the resources it has developed for families affected by autism, such as the 100 Day Kit. In order to make these resources more accessible to the global autism community, we have developed this page for non-English speaking families. Below you will find resources in a number of languages, followed by a description of how individuals and organizations can help Autism Speaks to adapt and translate its materials. Please continue to visit this page as more and more language resources become available.

Support the Translation of our Materials
Autism Speaks needs your help to make our resources more accessible to the non-English Speaking community.
All Autism Speaks Tool Kits are freely available, and we welcome translation of these resources into all languages. However, we ask that you let us know in advance if you are interested in translating any of our Tool kits. If you would like to translate one of these Kits, please adhere to the following translation policies:
- First translate the kit from English into the local language. During this phase you must make all of the cultural adaptations that are necessary. Please highlight the areas with contextual changes/additions for easier review later.
- Once the translation is completed and any contextual changes/additions have been made, a blind back translation must take place (that is someone or a group of individuals not directly involved in the translation to the local language, must translate it back to English). This will result in an English version of the toolkit which again includes all of the contextual changes.
- This English version must be sent to Autism Speaks for approval. Again, please have sections with changes/additions highlighted.
- Once approved, you will receive written permission allowing its use and dissemination with clear guidelines on how to acknowledge Autism Speaks. You must acknowledge that (1) certain portions of the Kit are licensed by Autism Speaks and are used by permission, and (2) the local translation team/organization is solely responsible for the content of the translated Kit. Use of the Kit does require an official copyright license from Autism Speaks, which we will provide upon approval of the translation.
Please note that all steps require you to include a family member of an individual with autism and a clinician or other service provider familiar with autism. Should you wish to move forward with the translation of any of our Tool Kits, please inform us of your intent to do so as soon as possible by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
