In an effort to help families and their adolescents with autism more smoothly navigate the challenging transition into adulthood, Autism Speaks has launched the Autism Speaks Transition Tool Kit, a unique guide and roadmap to help families on the journey from adolescence to adult life. The free Tool Kit, developed in conjunction with both parents and professionals, features a wealth of practical and actionable information, as well as links to valuable resources.
Applications Sought for Basic and Clinical Research Grants
Autism Speaks launched a new Request for Applications (RFA) to support both Basic & Clinical research grant applications at both the Full- and Pilot-Levels to conduct innovative biomedical and behavioral research into the causes, diagnosis and treatment of autism spectrum disorder. (Please note that there will not be a separate Pilot grant RFA in 2011.)
