September is an exciting time for all of us at ARI as we move toward awarding ARI’s 2023 Scientific Research Grant Awards, which will fund innovative investigations that show realistic promise for impacting the lives of autistic people. Research is the foundation of progress. It helps us better understand the unique needs and strengths of people with autism. It empowers the community to develop appropriate strategies to improve health, well-being, and overall quality of life.
Our online educational resources provide the community with the knowledge to advocate for research and appropriate medical care. If you haven't already, be sure to check them out at Autism.org/webinars.
As we look to the months ahead, I want to emphasize the importance of continued collaboration within our organization and with other research institutions, professionals, and, most importantly, the individuals and families of the autism community.
