Weekly Whirl - Taking Care of Your Own Health and Wellness

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.

There are two things more precious than your time - your family and your health. In order to be the best caregiver for your loved one with autism, you have to take care of yourself! How do you stay fit? What do you do to enable yourself to be the best caregiver you can be?


We have launched an exciting new campaign to get the autism community active and focused on improving their physical and emotional health, because advocates and caregivers need their strength.

The campaign is part of a partnership we have with Audax Health, the creators of Careverge. Over the next two months we’ll be rolling out all sorts of content from health professionals and most importantly, we’ll be featuring you!

Join the campaign by clicking here – this will take you to a special Careverge landing page where you will have tools to help with your summer journey to better health, as well as a place to share support and connect with others in the campaign. As you’re getting the family active and tracking your activity in Careverge, send us your pictures, tell us what is motivating you, and let us know which health related topics you’d like to hear more about.

The Autism Speaks blog features opinions from people throughout the autism community. Each blog represents the point of view of the author and does not necessarily reflect Autism Speaks' beliefs or point of view.
