In addition to treating autism itself we provide information and education for dealing with school systems, insurance companies, state, local, and the Federal Government, as well as legal issues.

Their goal is to raise public and professional awareness of autism spectrum disorders, and to empower those in the autism community to never give up in their search to help their loved ones reach their full potential.

This website contains many facts and documents recovered from the Freedom of Information Act.

FindingTheWords.org: "FINDING THE WORDS" is a film following the stories of five children in their struggle to recover from autistic spectrum disorder (ASD). The film also captures the unfolding drama of scientific discovery as doctors, pushed along by relentless parents, search for answers.
