Weekly Whirl - Our Impact at IMFAR!

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.

Autism Speaks is proud to again be a sponsor of IMFAR this year. IMFAR was created in 2001 by the co-founders of Cure Autism Now and the National Alliance for Autism Research. Both organizations have since merged with Autism Speaks to create the world’s leading autism research and advocacy organization.
