Autism Speaks Responds to Hurricane Sandy

Autism Speaks is working hard to provide information, resources and assistance to families affected by autism who experienced or are continuing to experience the devastating effects of last week's Hurricane Sandy. Families can apply for our AutismCares financial grant program, reach out to our Autism Response Team for help, join our Hurricane Sandy Support Group, and find lots of other resources on our website. You can also donate to our efforts to support victims of Hurricane Sandy.
