At the Autism Research Institute we have focused on providing information that is unbiased and broad-reaching, to assist families in making informed treatment decisions. We also strive to provide professional education that gives thoughtful, inquisitive clinicians the means to offer appropriate support.
Last fall we announced we'll be offering webinars and online trainings as well as a variety of local events and presentations that will allow opportunities for families to learn more without the challenge of travel. We hope you will join us in this exciting new initiative.

From the Director:  
We hope the start of 2013 has been a good one for you and your family.  As you can imagine, the Autism Research Institute (ARI) has many plans for 2013; we will be reporting them to you throughout the year. This month we are continuing our online webinars and kicking off our Autism Jobs initiative. There is much more to come - stay tuned!

I would also very much like to thank those who donated to ARI during the end-of-the-year campaign.  As you know, ARI relies on the generosity of donors to support our programs and initiatives.

I'd like to recognize our AGI leadership team for its work with the media following the tragic events in Newtown, Connecticut last month, urging careful discussion to avoid misconceptions after a report mentioned the accused assailant may have been diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder. To further help families and educators on their return to school in the New Year, AGI member Judy Endow, MSW team wrote "Help for Schools: Understanding the ASD" and published it on in late December.  

We are happy to hear that Wendy Fournier, director of the National Autism Association, is feeling much better - Wendy, our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Dr. James Adams, professor at Arizona State University and co-chair of ARI's Scientific Advisory Committee, recently published a comprehensive review paper, based on over 150 published references, on dietary, nutritional and medical treatments for those on the autism spectrum.  


We thank Dr. Adams for writing such an important and timely paper for the autism community. Click here to read the paper.
