ASF: Launch of NEW Website


Launch of NEW Website: Online Autism Research Destination for Parents, Individuals with Autism, Scientists and Teachers

(September 19, 2011—New York, NY)— The Autism Science Foundation (ASF), a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting and funding autism research, announced today that it has re-launched its website as an enhanced, interactive resource for parents, individuals with autism, teachers, scientists and other autism stakeholders.
The website is the central distribution point for the latest in autism science and research. The site features:
Over the next few weeks, ASF’s team will be adding more features to the site including autism research sorted by topic area and a section about autism research studies seeking participants.
"It's crucial that families, educators and scientists have access to up-to-date information that they know has been peer-reviewed or vetted by ASF's Scientific Advisory Board," said ASF co-founder Karen London. "Since ASF's inception in 2009, we have aimed to be a central and trusted source of rigorous science information for the autism community."
“We are pleased to be able to offer the autism community a broad and deep source of evidence-based information that integrates more interactive features and that reorganizes information to make it more useful and easier to find, in response to community feedback,” said Jonathan Carter,  ASF’s operations manager. “The site offers ways for everyone who has a connection to autism to get involved in this important issue.”  
ASF began funding research grants in 2009, its first year of operations, and has increased its funding levels each year.  Since 2009, it has funded nearly half a million dollars in research grants. The organization was recently named the number one startup nonprofit in the “Disabilities” category by Philanthropedia/Guidestar.

ASF is a 501(c) (3) public charity. Its mission is to support autism research by providing funding to scientists and organizations conducting autism research. ASF also provides information about autism to the general public and serves to increase awareness of autism spectrum disorders and the needs of individuals and families affected by autism.
