In a continuing effort to give back to the Autism Community, Autisable is connecting with organizations that help families that deal with the Autism Spectrum. And today we are pleased to announce one such connection with Autism Society.
Autism Society is the nation’s leading grassroots autism organization and exists to improve the lives of all affected by autism. They do this by increasing public awareness about the day-to-day issues faced by people on the spectrum, advocating for appropriate services for individuals across the lifespan, and providing the latest information regarding treatment, education, research and advocacy.
Founded in 1965 by Dr. Bernard Rimland, Dr. Ruth Sullivan and many other parents of children with autism, the Autism Society is the leading source of trusted and reliable information about autism. Through its strong chapter network, the Autism Society has spearheaded numerous pieces of state and local legislation, including the 2006 Combating Autism Act, the first federal autism-specific law.
The Autism Society's website is one of the most visited websites on autism in the world and its quarterly journal, Autism Advocate, has a broad national readership. The Autism Society also hosts the most comprehensive national conference on autism, attended by 2000 people each year. Their information and referral team, their program staff, and their strong chapter presence serve thousands of families each year who are searching for help in their journey with autism.
For more information, visit www.autism-society.orgTo help promote Autism Society and help its members better connect online, Autisable has just launched a "Groups" area specifically for members and supporters of Autism Society. Any member of the Xanga Network may join these groups. And anyone who joins through an autisable.comuser account, will receive a badge on their Autisable site indicating their support for Autism Society.
As part of this new connection, Autisable is also donating 10% of proceeds from advertising to Autism Society.
We're pleased to welcome all Autism Society members and supporters to the Autisable community, and we hope to help you connect with one another so we all may have more awareness and understanding of Autism.
