Memorial Day: Autism Speaks Salutes Those Who Fought For Our Country

May 22, 2015

On this Memorial Day, Autism Speaks salutes the thousands of men and women who have given their lives to protect the United States of America. These great American heroes hold a special place in our minds and in our hearts. We honor them today and are reminded how much we owe to their sacrifices. 

Many military families are impacted by autism. Over 23,000 military dependents have a diagnosis on the autism spectrum. These families are substantially affected by the financial and emotional costs of raising a child with autism. Learn more about our resources for military families here
