Calls to Action


Last year, the Celgene Corporation donated over 300 gently used iPads to Autism Speaks. As our focus on adult services continues to grow, we decided to donate the iPads to programs serving adults with autism. We sent the iPads to our field offices around the country to distribute them in person to organizations in their local communities.

Today Autism Speaks announced the recipients of the 2013 Chapter, Regional and Neighborhood Grants programs. These grants are selected at the local level by volunteers that include parents, professionals and individuals with autism. Below one volunteer talks about her experience reviewing grant applications. "These grants hit my heart even more than I could imagine."

If anyone knows how hectic life can get – WE DO! That’s why we have created the Autism Speaks Weekly Whirl to fill you in on all of the highlights of the week! The last thing we want is for you to be left out of the loop! Please share with friends and family to spread the word about all of the exciting things going on in the autism community. Keep in mind, these updates aren’t limited to Autism Speaks — we will be featuring news from across the community.
