Two ways you can take action now to make sure research about us benefits us

August 21, 2023, Autistic Self Advocacy Network (ASAN) shared an action alert with information on how to submit comments and concerns about funding for autism research. They include a toolkit supporting the process in both plain language and Easy Read.

“The autistic and nonspeaking communities are often left out of setting priorities for funding research. This means that research often doesn’t reflect our entire community.” – ASAN
