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.
