Autism Speaks in Illinois

 At Autism Speaks, our goal is to change the future for all who struggle with autism spectrum disorder. We are dedicated to the following:

·         Science and Research - leading us to answers and interventions

·         Family Services - providing families with information, tools and resources

·         Awareness - increasing public knowledge and understanding of autism

·         Advocacy - accelerating national and state autism legislation

Autism Speaks has committed nearly $199 million in these areas, with $2.3 million of these funds raised in Illinois in 2013 through our families, sponsors and generous donors!
