On Wednesday night in Boston, Autism Speaks and The Lurie Center for Autism cohost a screening of Blockburger Productions’ new documentary, “Sounding the Alarm,” --a city with so many great supporters, partners and grant recipients.
Since 2005, Autism Speaks has awarded more than $11 million in research grants, and over $300,000 in Family Services grants in Massachusetts, providing vital support to programs and service providers there. We’d like to take a moment to thank all of those who have been integral partners in the Boston area including Massachusetts General Hospital and the Lurie Center for Autism; Asperger's Association of New England (AANE); Autism Services Association; Beacon Services; Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center; Bob’s Furniture; Boston Children's Hospital; Boston Red Sox and Fenway Park; Boston University; Boston University Men’s Hockey Team; Child Talk; Dana-Farber Cancer Institute; Dotwell; the Evergreen Center; Frito Lay; Greater Boston Convention and Visitor’s Bureau; Greater Boston YMCA/Reading Burbank YMCA; Harvard University; Massachusetts Advocates for Children; Lindt Chocolate; Live Nation; Massachusetts Institute of Technology; Music & Youth Initiative; Nashoba Learning Group; National Autism Center; Northeastern University; Shriver Center New England Index; Teamsters Local 25; the TJX Companies; University of Massachusetts Foundation; the University of Massachusetts Medical School, Boston; Uno Chicago Grill and WROR105.7
Every day we are proving that as a united team we can provide support and services for every one of the three million people on the spectrum who need us.
