COVID-19 (coronavirus) information and resources

The situation around the current spread of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is changing rapidly, so make sure you stay informed by visiting the CDC’s information page regularly.

As Autism Speaks continues to monitor the evolving situation, our sincere hope is that you and your loved ones are staying safe and healthy.

We understand that many people with autism and their families are being directly impacted, seeing disruptions in services and coping with the uncertainty of what comes next. We want to share some resources and information that may help you at this time. These pages will be updated regularly as new content is developed.

NEW April 9 - Autism Certification Center (ACC) and Autism Speaks are teaming up to make 30+ hours of online video learning resources available at no cost for the autism community. Now through June 1, 2020, get free access to the Foundations of Evidence-Based Strategies courses with over 30 hours of video-based content.
