Committees Mission 


The mission of the Autism Speaks Family Services Committee is to empower families and individuals impacted by autism to make informed decisions that maximize the quality of life and development potential of affected individuals; to promote research funding that yields evidence for the best practices in the treatment of autism and associated disorders; and to serve as a catalyst and advocate for the implementation of best practices in autism treatment, education, and services from early intervention through adult care.
