ARI accomplishments, ari accomplishments 2019

At ARI, we have always been mindful of the needs of those on the autism spectrum and their family members. Their support over the past five decades has magnified our focus on advancing an ambitious research agenda while reporting on the latest science-based information for people of all ages on the spectrum.

While the causes of ASD remain unclear, recent scientific advances challenge the traditional view of autism as an untreatable disease—as one that is genetically hardwired. ese developments support the position that ARI has always maintained: autism is treatable. ARI continues to pioneer research, outreach, and cooperative efforts with other organizations worldwide.
