Founded in 1965 by Dr. Bernard Rimland, Dr. Ruth Sullivan and many other parents of children with autism, the Autism Society is the leading source of trusted and reliable information about autism. Through its strong national network of affiliates, the Autism Society has spearheaded numerous pieces of state and local legislation, including the 2006 Combating Autism Act, the first federal autism-specific law. The Autism Society's website is one of the most visited websites on autism in the world and its online journal, Autism Advocate, has a broad national readership. The Autism Society hosts the most comprehensive national conference on autism, attended by 2,000 people each year. Through Autism Source(TM), the Autism Society's national information and referral center, and a strong affiliate presence in states and communities throughout the country, the Autism Society serves thousands of families each year who are searching for help in their journeys with autism.
The Autism Society is proud to be one of the few organizations to have members on the autism spectrum serving as active members of the board of directors as well as in other leadership positions throughout the organization. Temple Grandin was the first member-elected person living with autism to serve on the Autism Society Board of Directors in 1988. The Autism Society's Panel of Professional Advisors (PPA), a panel of some of the top professional experts in autism, sets the standards for an Options Policy that governs all practices. The Autism Society's Advisory Panel of People on the Spectrum of Autism (PSA) is a first-of-its-kind advisory panel comprised solely of individuals with autism, who help Autism Society staff create programs and services that will advocate for the rights of all people with autism to live fulfilling, interdependent lives.

The Autism Research Foundation
The Autism Research Foundation (TARF) is the nation’s first medically-accredited autism research nonprofit organization. The Foundation is dedicated to exploring the brain-basis for autism, while creating innovative inclusion programs in the community such as Athletes 4 Autism, Jobs 4 Autism, Michael’s Place and Artists 4 Autism.
Dr. Margaret Bauman founded The Autism Research Foundation in 1990 to establish a funding reserve for pioneering autism research, and since that time, The Foundation has grown as an information authority in autism. The Foundation achieved this authority by regularly addressing the changing needs of its community.
Noticing that parents needed answers to their child’s autism diagnosis in an approachable science capacity, TARF began the Current Trends in Autism Conference: an annual two-day event that brings parents and professionals together to learn from each other and distinguished leaders in autism education, therapy, medicine, lifestyle and research.
