Autism-Friendly Designation

Autism-Friendly Designation Logo

Autism impacts more than 70 million people worldwide, and at least one in 54 children in the United States. We believe that when more businesses, destinations, organizations and employees commit to become more autism-friendly, we can create a more understanding and accepting world for all.

The Autism Speaks Autism-Friendly Designation signals to the public that your organization is committed to creating an inclusive, accepting and understanding environment for all guests and customers.  This program – developed by autistic people, clinicians and autism experts and guided by national level competencies in direct support for people with disabilities –  helps foster organizational understanding and acceptance of autistic people, their family members and those who support them.
