April is always a busy time for all of us in the autism community. At ARI, we just wrapped up travel to an annual autism conference in Moscow, Russia, and are finalizing plans for our 25th annual scientific think tank set for later this month. We are also proud to announce the release of our new website - be sure to check it out atAutism.org.

In this picture Dougie is enjoying the weather in a courtyard in Sorrento, Italy. He enjoys traveling. Support from many resources has helped him come out of his shell. He is very social in his own way and loves to be "one of the guys."
ARI conducts, sponsors and supports research on the underlying causes of and treatments for autism. Our grant application is available online and we are currently accepting applications from qualified research professionals. Deadline for submissions: July 1, 2019.
Benefits of Microbiota Transfer Therapy on autism symptoms and gut microbiota
New research demonstrates the long-term beneficial effects for children diagnosed with ASD through a revolutionary technique known as Microbiota Transfer Therapy (MTT), a special type of fecal transplant. Remarkably, improvements in gut health and autism symptoms appear to persist long after treatment.
Since 1995, The Autism Research Institute has convened top experts at its annual scientific think tanks to discuss issues related to promising treatments and intervention. This April marks 25 years of discussion and debate with a commitment to following the science wherever it leads.
